Susan stared at the mixer in positive frustration. Mixing this cake was SO much work! She was trying so hard, yet it seemed she hardly made any progress. She thought baking was supposed to be fun. What was wrong?
“You are supposed to mix this batter,” Susan lectured herself (and, in a way, the mixer). But lecturing about what she was supposed to do didn’t seem to help at all. What was wrong?
Her mom walked by and saw her frustration almost instantly. “Susan, you need to plug the mixer in,” she explained.
Sure enough, a plugged-in mixer made a world of a difference!
