I will let you in on a little secret: I do not posses the patience gene.

I wish I did.

I can fake it when necessary. Like when I am stuck at a cocktail party listening to an anecdote about the pros and cons of all-weather floor mats (yes this really happened – and yes – you should feel sorry for me) or waiting for Georgia to get dressed.

Thank God I didn't push for the tights.

But patience is just not my thing. Hence, my love of store bought mashed potatoes…which are fabulous by the way and totally taste homemade when you dump them in your own serving dish and add a stick of melted butter (which would make a flip-flop taste good) and a generous dose of kosher salt.
