I announced this evening, "Tonight I am going to make paella."
"Oh! That sounds good!" he replied.
"Well, we don't have shellfish - we have a few little frozen shrimp. And no chicken, but that's OK, I have some cod. And no calamari, but there is a can of smoked oysters I can use..."
"So, basically, we're having rice for dinner?"
"Can we wait and I'll pick up some seafood tomorrow afternoon?"
"That sounds good."
Ah, life in rural Kansas...
