10:00 and we want to assemble a high chair for tomorrow’s dinner. We have invited over a single mom with her 2 year old.
This is a Fisher Price chair – should be a breeze. 30 minutes in and we decide it will never fit together. In a rather grumpy mood we repackage the whole thing.
Behold, there is a piece that I hadn’t seen. Somehow it had been taken out of the box and set aside. Looks just like a piece that I had inserted and tried to fit other pieces to.
New hope — or complete frustration. This is the choice! We decide to try again. The first few steps are easy. Then the misplaced piece is put into place. The next piece fits — with some persuasion. Now 35 more minutes later and we are finished.
Remember the good old saying — “It’ll only take a few minutes!”
