Sensing a “wave” of change


After my chopper fiasco, I am thinking of settling of scores with husband. In case you are wondering what I am talking about, then you must read my previous post. I have been plotting and scheming the last month (on my vacation!!) and have finally landed with a brilliant idea. 

A new microwave, yes that is what is going please my soul! Alright maybe I sound a bit too melodramatic, but that’s what’s going to get me a new microwave. My husband bought our existing microwave 6 years ago at a sale. There is no major problem with it apart from the fact that it gives little zings when you touch it when it is not in a good mood. It’s just that I don’t like the look of it!

This alone was not a good reason for him to change; he would say “I will fix it for you”. However those promises were also never met. 

My cunning plan is borrowed from a hilarious book with dangerously silly stunts explained for beginners like myself. The book explains how to blow up a microwave among other things.  All I need to do is keep an unopened can of beans and turn it on for 5 mins. The book promises that this would surely blow off the entire microwave.



As I write this post I am also very hopeful that I would not have to take such a drastic step. I am sure this hint would prove very helpful.

Then there are a couple of more things that I would love change in the house but for now I will be contented with a brand new microwave.

Note to hubby – I have found a new place where could sell that silly microwave and still get some money to buy peanuts! Check it out:  http://www.cashconverters.ae/index.php/about-us

  1. Buy a new one! An ugly or good looking microwave really does make all the difference in a kitchen.

  2. Ah! I hope your husband takes the hint too! When the microwave blows up who knows what else he will need to replace - not to mention the peanuts he will miss out on :)

  10. All the best now that you have made up your mind to blow up your house. Don your demolition cap and if ever in doubt make be you try your hand at a little home made recipe for bomb and other amateur pyrotechnics.

    Blow away! :)
