Yesterday morning, I awoke to a bag of charcoal sitting on my chest. Fiona and David had gotten me an early birthday present, and this was part of it. Once I dragged myself out from under the charcoal, I found a grill waiting for me on the kitchen table. Just right for the Fourth of July.
Did I mention that the grill was in a box, waiting for me to assemble it, a process that the instructions assured me would take no more than 45 minutes? If you have any idea of my mechanical aptitude, or, more accurately, my complete lack thereof, then the four hours it actually took me to build the thing won't seem either that surprising or that hilarious. And let's not even go into the hour after that it took me to get the charcoal going...
That said, the grill is now up and running, and the hot dogs and veggie burgers we had for dinner were delicious!
