I’m chasing after time, again. I want to leave the house at 3:15 to pick up the kids. It’s 3:10, and I’m making their snacks. 4 slices of sourdough bread. Put them in the toaster and wait till they’re done. Spread some butter until it melts. Scoop a generous spoonful of some store-bought apricot jam and move the spoon around, pulling the amber blob across the bread. Cover with another slice.
