I had a strange feeling something like this might happen! But I shoved my “worse case scenario” thoughts aside and looked the other way. (I have a worse case scenario thought about absolutely everything. It’s a curse!) Here’s the (very unimportant) thing:
I’m getting a new oven and microwave. Even though we’ve gotten a pay-cut, we still need an oven right? And mine takes 30 minutes to broil a piece of toast. Why, you ask, don’t you use your toaster to make toast? That’s easy, I threw my toaster away in July. It was yucky. Not dirty per-se, but yucky. You know, the bread bag melted on the side of it yucky. It was mocking and verbally abusive each and every time I pulled it out of the cabinet. So it had to go. I never looked back.
But I digress. A while ago, I picked out this awesome, practically million dollar oven. (you know what I mean, not a million bucks, but a lot) Then the pay-cut. So…regroup. I researched and found an oven for about ten bucks.(compared to the first one!) It’s a good oven and I’m excited about getting it. There’s a pretty microwave that matches! And really, what else do you need in a popcorn popper besides pretty? Anyhoo, I had in my devious little mind that they would be here BEFORE my party. Sooooo, about 2 weeks ago, I just quit cleaning my oven and microwave. Stopped. Cold turkey. Oh it felt good. Like I was in some way, sticking it to that oven and microwave for getting old and unreliable.
Don’t judge me, I wiped off crumbs, just not the “cooked on” spills. I smiled to myself knowing that soon the ugly, dirty little things would be going away. You see it coming don’t you? Wait for it: I’m not getting my new oven and microwave before my party!
I was thinking of maybe taking a picture to show you how bad they look. But, I’m not gonna lie, I’m completely humiliated. One more thing I’m adding to my “to-do” list. Or maybe not~
