I do not have a science experiment on the stove. My boys do not keep going over to it and telling me how much it stinks.
I have not delayed taking it out because the trash is full, because, of course, my husband always takes out the trash immediately when necessary.
Also, I did not give my boys a cookie snack yesterday right around dinner time. I did not then completely forget about their dinner, put them in bed, remember, and decide not to get them up. And I most certainly don't have boys who didn't remind me, either. Humph.
