Meddling

6:30pm. Lisa and Mike are on the couch, contemplating dinner.

Mike: “I’ll make dinner. Vegetable red curry stir fry.”
Lisa: “Can I help?”
Mike: “Are you going to meddle?”
Lisa: “No.”
MIke: “Then you can chop the vegetables.”
[Pause]
Lisa: “I’ll tell you now, though, that I’ll be very unhappy if you put water in the stir fry.”
Mike: “You said you weren’t going to meddle!”
Lisa: “That’s not meddling! You haven’t started yet! Therefore I am not interfering in an ongoing process. I am merely imparting information about standard cooking practices and my preferences prior to the start of said process. As soon as I start chopping vegetables I’ll stop talking, I promise.”
