Janice started her new job as a Chef’s assistant at a nearby local restaurant.
One of her many duties is to chop a fresh batch of vegetables each morning for the Chef for his daily menu and the rest to later be parboiled.
One day as she was working on this task, the Chef was in a bit of a hurry and asked her if she was done yet.
“No, not just yet,” she replied to him, feeling a bit inadequate for having not yet been done, “but I will be soon.”
“That’s quite alright, my dear,” he says with a pleasant smile, and continued tending to his task at hand while he waited for her to finish.
Finally she was done and brought the fresh vegetables to him, and asked, “Do you want me to add these vegetables to the pot of brains, or in the pot of intestines?”
This is part of the M3 Flash in the Pan word challenge.
Challenged word is parboil with a word limit of 150 words.
