Instructions for Anand

I have texted the following to Anand, who is the only other family member awake right now. We will now open the betting on whether he will successfully complete the task:


Okay, next task will be making Mommy’s tea. I’m going to give you step-by-step instructions to remind you.

– open bedroom door before you go downstairs so you can bring tea in

– get mug and fill it about 3/4 full with water

– take off teapot lid and pour water into teapot, close lid

– press button to start

– get teabag from second-tallest canister and put in mug

– get Splenda from smallest canister, open packet, pour into mug, throw away empty Splenda packet

– when kettle turns off (should say something like 212), pour water into mug

– wait 3 minutes for tea to finish steeping

– add some milk to mug, try not to make it so full it’ll be hard to carry upstairs

– bring tea to poor, sick Mommy.
