Losing Patience – Chimera 66

Losing Patience

Stan’s barbs about Samantha’s cooking skills were getting old.

“Whatcha’ making?” said Stan.


“Aren’t you going to fold it over?”

“No. Why?”

Stan rolled his eyes. “If you don’t fold it, it’s a Frittata.”

Samantha scowled. “So what?”

Stan snickered annoyingly, “It’s an important difference!”

Samantha gritted her teeth and aimed her spatula. “Is it a ‘hat’ if I dump this mother on your head?”
My hard working wife put in an exhausting 15-hour day as a nurse in the clinic. Yesterday. Usually, I make an omelette for her. Today, I think it’ll be a Frittata. This week at Grammar Ghoul Press’ Chimera 66 writing challenge, the word prompt is: Frittata.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    God bless ya – you’re a lovely hubs. What sort of frittata is it going to be? I hope there’ll be a nice glass of wine to go with it 😉

  2. Liked the humor in this story. The regular perfectionist always on a mission to ‘improve’ everybody else. Finally put in his place, very nicely!

    Yep. I think that would qualify as a hat. 😉

    Really funny. Husbands who know cooking are really nosy.
