SO, what did i do? i went to the garage, found where he stashed the old (OLD OLD OLD) microwave and lugged it back inside to heat up my damned water.
new, evil, tiny, cunty microwave, with lots unnecessary beeping noises and gadgets that we'll never use
old, comfy, BIG, simple, three-dial microwave
all you have to do is turn the dial to the time you want, and voila! this thing, guys, is older than i am. i have used it alllllll my life. i think my dad bought it when he bought the house or something. and it is a MONSTER. i couldn't lift it to put it up on the trolley thing it (USED TO! D:) sits on. seriously. i tried to lift it up, but i just couldn't. the new one however, is dinky and i picked it up with one arm. i hate the new one.
question: how should i sabotage/"accidentally break" the new microwave so that we have to use the old one? BE CREATIVE!!!
