the everlasting nap
A leftover chicken tender seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder was cut it up and placed in a bowl with water and rice noodles. The bowl was microwaved for two and a half minutes, then the oil and flavoring included in the pho gà package was added. The contents of the bowl were quickly mixed around and microwaved for another minute and a half.
After the soup was given time to cool off to a pleasant temperature, it was consumed. Within half an hour, I was asleep in my bed intending to only take a nap for half an hour. I woke up to the sound of M walking through the door at one in the morning. I was supposed to pick her up from the airport but failed to turn on the ringer on my phone and slept through. Oops and argh.
