She had lunch with her brother. Halfway through, he said: “Last night I was heating up some hot dogs, and somehow I managed to put the buns in the water instead. I went into the kitchen and saw the water was boiling in the little saucepan, and I opened the packet of hot dog buns, and I dropped one into the water. I even had to tip the water out and boil some more because, you know, the bread just started to break up straight away.” Then he began to cry. She was late back to work that day.
