George: Step aside! The king of the cookout is here. I’m ready to work my magic on this barbecue.
Sophia: Here are the burgers and hot dogs. The kids are pretty hungry.
George: Hold on. I need to put on the charcoal. Now I’m ready to fire up this barbecue. Where’s the lighter fluid?
Sophia: It’s right here.
George: Good. Oh, I almost forgot. I’ll need to gather some wood to burn to give the meat that smoky flavor.
Sophia: Why don’t I do that while you get things going?
George: No, I need to do things my way. I also need to make my world-famous barbecue sauce. The meat won’t taste very good if I don’t baste it with my special sauce each time I flip it.
Sophia: Okay, how about if I get the corn on the cob ready for grilling?
George: I’ll do that. I have my own special way of preparing the corn.
Sophia: Is there anything I can do to hurry things along?
George: Perfection takes time. Would you tell Michelangelo to hurry up?
