You can’t always get what you want

You have to sing that heading in the voice of Mick Jagger.

I bought a new BBQ yesterday. We’re not big barbecuers, if that’s even a word. I’m vegetarian and the boys eat meat but not a lot. We don’t entertain a lot and when we do our usually make a curry and a roast for the meat eaters. Simple stuff. We’re not big proponents of the ‘boys stand around the bbq beer in hand’ type of gathering.

So I bought a Weber.

Hubby does not like my Weber and said he was expecting something he could ‘cook thirty sausages on’.

When, I asked him, have you ever bl**dy had to cook thirty sausages at a time? (Our sons 13th birthday party… 7 years ago…) seriously 😒

My husband doesn’t like change. He doesn’t naturally trust technology. He’s suspicious of anything that might require learning something new. That makes him sound like a Luddite and he’s not…but he must be dragged kicking and screaming into the future. Or the present. Or even three years ago.

The problem with getting what you want is that most of us are pretty poor judges of what it is that we actually need. And there’s one thing I know for sure…we get what we need!
