We're rolling, giggling, gut-busting laughing! Did he really do that?!
Mr. Scabs face is drenched in drops of sweat! He's gleaming, glossy even!
We can't stop chuckling!
I made some delish Chicken Mango Wraps for dinner when a good friend stopped by. We ate and laughed and talked openly with Mr. Scabs about his sex addiction. He has come to a place where he can have a genuine conversation about his motives, thoughts and on a good day his feelings. Yep, feelings. My friend was asking some pretty hard questions.
"Did you ever think you would get caught?" and "How did you let it go so far?"
While sharing his story he stood up to fix another wrap. Piling on a little chicken, a little mango and some garden basil. The wrap calls for cumin but instead I added a small pinch of chili flakes. The shaker of flakes was beckoning like too much of a good thing. He piled on a mountain of blazing little peppers. Fool. I looked at his wrap and warned, "that's a lot of chilies".
Shrugging his shoulders he gobbled it up. This is when we started laughing and couldn't stop! He tried to play is cool but there was no hiding his glossy forehead and bloodshot eyes. Red and dripping wet with spice induced sweat he sat paralyzed by the sweltering heat!
All I could think was, "this is so typical". No moderation. No heeding warnings.
His taste buds stinging and his head a glossy, sweaty mess! It's hilarious! I didn't get up to get him an ice water. That's my new non-codependent attitude kicking in. I don't mind watching him suffer. Those are the natural consequences of his reckless chili-flake overdose and it has nothing to do with me! My friend and I were dying as he wiped up sweat and guzzled buckets of ice water trying to recover.
The wrap was YUM and so easy to make. Try the recipe below but go easy on the chili flakes!
