This came to me as I was making myself dinner last night, and I thought it might be a good general DCIB discussion question. I have THOUGHTS, surely you do as well!
- Not knowing if your eggs are successfully softboiled or if you under or over cooked them until you have cracked them open.
- Not knowing if that noise woke the baby.
- Not knowing if your friend enjoyed the movie you just showed them
For me, it’s definitely the eggs. If the noise woke the baby but the baby doesn’t cry, who cares? Let the baby be awake and silent! If my friend didn’t enjoy the movie, I can just talk at them until I convince them they enjoyed it.
But the eggs, that is STRESSFUL. Because the only way to find out is to breach the seal of the shell, and then you are committed one way or the other.
