It's been a rough week, folks, but a number of lessons have been learned.
Principal lesson is: do not try to push noodles uphill--and especially do not try to do so if you have a deadline staring you in the face.
Second lesson is: slow down. In general an advisable course of action. Or in this case, non-action. If you slow down, you may see that the noodles are in fact another type of starch altogether.
Third lesson is: never try to eat the cheese yourself.
Fourth lesson is, be careful not to climb into the water right before it boils. That's deadly for frogs and people.
Fifth, when the meal is over, no matter who's got or given indigestion, chill out.
