The Tale of the Microwave // Happy Friday

If you know me at all then you know that I have a tendency to break things. Sometimes I don't know my own strength, sometimes it's just bad timing, sometimes it's my own stupidity. But I have a horrible habit of breaking things. It's pretty much all things too. I'm not picky about what I break. Check out this blog to read more about some of those things. That doesn't even go into the technology I have broken.

Anyway my talk about breaking things is leading to my story about the microwave.


We have had this microwave for a long time now. In fact Rob had it before we were together. It has traveled with us and served us well. I will admit that I may not have been the best at keeping it clean but sometimes the problem is out of sight, out of mind when it comes to cleaning the microwave.

Recently I have noticed that that the microwave has been acting a bit strange. I thought it was because we had a Kleenex box on top or because I'm just full of bad luck. But every once in awhile it would make a popping sound. It wasn't all the time and it wasn't every time it was used, and I thought it was just the plate off line but otherwise I didn't think much of it.

However it was a couple weeks ago now that I tried to heat up some chicken nuggets which so happen to be Connor's favorite lunch meal. It was almost immediately it started making a popping noise. But this time it didn't stop and was getting louder. Honestly I was afraid the thing was going to blow up so I rush over and stopped it. I opened the door only to be greeted with smoke. Now I don't know a lot about microwaves but I know they aren't supposed to smoke. I also knew that it wasn't because I burnt the chicken nuggets because they were in for about 20 seconds total.

But now I had a broken microwave or maybe it was just me. So I called Rob. It's always going to be weird when I have to tell him that "I haven't burned down the house but..." Since it was lunch time he decided to come home and figure out what was going on.

So he came home to check out the microwave. I made a sandwich for Connor by this point hoping he would eat it (up to this point he wouldn't eat anything but chicken nuggets for lunch). Rob decided to move the microwave to the dining room away from our eating kids to test it out. Meanwhile the whole time Addie is telling Rob all about the smoke and how we don't want to catch on fire.

Rob gets the microwave going and it immediately started doing the same thing. So he turns it off and we officially call it.

After many many years of good heating, it was time for our faithful microwave to retire. Rob went out to get another one and we replaced the microwave and that was that. Of course it took us a couple of weeks to finally remember to put it out with the trash but finally we have said good-bye to our good microwave and start our new heating part of our life with a new one.


And now cheers to you for getting to end of this very pointless story.

Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday!
