today i went to a barbecue for my girlfriend’s birthday, and ended up being the main griller over the course of the night. by the time everyone had eaten a satisfactory numbers of burgers (and whatever else), there were still two cooked burgers left over. not wanting to waste them, i left them on the grill and shut the barbecue cover, suggesting that maybe someone would want them later. of course, as soon as i shut that cover, i knew it was more likely that everyone would just forget they were there. sure enough, on my way home later that night, i recalled the fact that those two burgers were still on the grill.
