She was a self proclaimed cook who cooked only when she felt like it. She was one who enjoyed eating and one of those who needed something delicious when extremely hungry.
Then came a day when she was so engrossed in her work that she found no time to eat. Surviving on a banana till 3pm, she decided to cook something yummy. But the simplest and quickest meal she could think of was the pasta and she was sure it would satisfy her.
She went to the kitchen, grabbed an onion and a tomato. Put a cup of pasta to boil and was staring at her pot. She realized she dint have any of her gadgets with her and felt incomplete. So she ran up to to her room to grab something interesting to do while her pasta boiled..
She found her laptop and her phone on her table but had lost her mind. She forgot the task she had taken up, she had forgotten her boiling pasta! Time went by, she sent a few mails, made a few phone calls and was watching some videos on you tube when she smelt something burning. It struck her mind that she was cooking something but what it was that she was cooking, she dint know.
She ran downstairs, terrified, clueless as to what she had done. Glanced at the fire alarm on her way to the kitchen praying for it to not go off. There it was ! Her pasta ! She found her pasta but no water. Little relived that nothing caught on fire, she switched off her gas , switched on the exhaust fan, removed her pot, waving ferociously above the stove, thinking it would help and then she heard what she was praying not to hear ! The smoke detector went off.
Putting off the smoke detector, she opened all the windows and doors. She ran upstairs to see if the smell was still lingering in her room. Yes , the whole second floor smelt burnt. Praying that the second floor smoke alarm to not go off, opened all the windows.
Running up and down the two floors, making sure no squirrel sneaked in through the window or no thief walked in through the doors, her mind was screwed up. She started thinking, she started to think how all of this could have become even worse because of her carelessness and how lucky she was just to be left with nothing but a burnt pot and the smell of something burnt. This cook had learnt a valuable lesson that day !
