I was going to make spaghetti for dinner tonight, so I started my noodles and then went into my room to do something. A few minutes later, I went back out there to check on them and realized I had turned on the wrong burner. "Ugh," I thought. So, I turned off the burner that was on and went back to my room. A few minutes later I went back out there to check on the noodles again and saw that they still weren't boiling. Why? Because I had forgot to turn on the right burner. So, I turned the right burner on and then went on about my business. Then I totally forgot about the noodles and by the time I checked on them they were a soggy mess.
At this point I gave up and ate cereal.
