It's been 9 years. You've had a good run. But I find your recent groaning noises, flashes of light, and the vague wisps of smoke coming from your interior slightly troubling. And the unsightly clutter that surrounded you was off-putting. I think it's safe to say that it's time to move on. Your replacement has a lot to live up to. I'm not sure she'll heat up leftovers quite the way you did, but we're willing to take that chance. Good luck with your future endeavors.
So we got a new microwave on Friday. I was beginning to fear for my life, and every time I used it, I envisioned a Lifetime movie being made out of my story. "Girl Goes Blind from Microwave Explosion. Loses Eyesight and Blog." I would be played by some B-list actress, but Arnold Schwarzenegger would come out of acting retirement to play T. Because he would want it that way.
I gave the new guy an inaugural run. It seemed only fitting that a mocha latte make that first trip.
Except maybe a new microwave.
