1) So I want to talk about the concept that untrained kitchen labor slows things down.

Thus, I have to explain one of our very obscure family in-phrases.

The Batman/Time Machine situation.
2) In the ancient days of the 90's, I read every JLA comic I could get my hands on. Grant Morrison sucked me in. Huge fanboy.

And there was JLA/Wildcats. Totally passable, which makes it a top-tier company crossover.

It had Batman and the time machine.
3) So the Justice League are stuck in the past, and Batman's fixing the time machine.

This beautiful exchange happens.

Superman: How long until it's fixed?

Batman: Fifteen minutes.

Superman: And if we all pitch in?

4) In our household, the scene plays out like this.

"Hey, can I help with the turkey stuffing? I could-"

"Batman/time machine. Clear the table and take out the garbage."

"On it!"
5) So if you offered to help in the kitchen, and you don't get the job that you want, remember

Try what you're assigned.

Don't try to push into other tasks.

No one want to be Kyle Rayner poking around the flux capacitor.
