I'm not really talking about Pancakes

I love metaphors.
I love talking about things in code.
I love talking about things that I'm not really talking about.

Confused yet?
I've done this before.





I made my children pancakes this morning for breakfast.
They know it takes extra time to do this and view it as a special treat.

I used to make pancakes in a skillet, one at a time, and it took forever.
Time consuming and ineffective.
I didn't know what I was doing.
But I kept trying.

Then I wised up and asked for a griddle one Christmas.

Now I can mass produce those suckers.
They aren't perfectly shaped or gorgeous...but they taste good.






My pancake philosophy is much like my _______________ .

I try to be more effective, more efficient, and hit what counts...but I'm not perfect.

Fill in the blank.

Hopefully you don't mean your bathroom time -- "more effective, more efficient," especially with "hit what counts".

So I'm going with blogging too. Though, as moms, our bathroom time is limited, isn't it?

My pancake philosophy is much like my _______________ .

Cleaning style. Fast and efficient. I want to get it done right and not have to redo it. Of course the first pancake is always burnt and has to be trashed. Glad the first thing I clean is not that way.

I'd love to be original, but I say blogging, because it was the very first thing that came to mind.

Well, I'm going to say "disposition."

Now that that's over. I make my pancakes on a griddle also. I've found the most efficient method for uniformmit is 1/4 cup size in a face centered cubic arrangement.
