I went to see the film "The Hangover" on Saturday. Good movie. I was laughing so hard, I thought they'd kick me out. I do that sometimes. I'm big on comedy, and I love to laugh. Laughter smooths out my edges. Anyhoo, I had a craving for popcorn. I hate popcorn. I haven't made it myself since you could only get it in jars or foil pans for the stove. So, anyhoo, I read the directions. It says microwave on high, 2-3 minutes. So, I set it for two minutes and walked away. Simple, eh?
I walked into the kitchen, alarm blaring in the background.. Hmmm.. I don't think that's steam pouring out the sides of the microwave. I tore the bag open with poultry shears, to find a black, smelly, mass of popcorn.. actively burning. Flames.
How bad of a member of the 21st Century do you have to be, to not be able to cook popcorn.. with a microwave?
I'm a great cook, people love the cakes I make from scratch. I just never mastered the art of guessing how long, is long enough, to cook something in the microwave. Had I set it for the full three minutes, I'd probably have had to turn in a box alarm. I thought about just taking it to the sink, but an ER visit for burns ain't on my list of things to do today.
