Jill: Have you made coffee yet?
Lill: Pfff…after getting the third degree from you yesterday, I am choosing to buy my coffee this morning.
Jill: Look, I’m running late and won’t have time to stop on the way to the office – can you just quickly make some now?
Lill: I am in the midst of eating my Froot Loops and cannot put them down at such a critical juncture. If I do, they’ll turn into Froot Mush which is grey, soggy and needless to say not very appetizing. I just can’t do it Jillian, I’m afraid you’re asking too much – the sacrifice would be too great.
Jill: *Sigh* If everyone else were able to apply such skills of prioritization to their lives I’m sure the world would be a better and happier place.
Lill: And more importantly, mushy bottom-of-the-bowl-cereal would be eradicated.
