anybody else afraid of microwave ovens?
I get a lttle creeped out by them, in a weird, science-fiction B-movie kinda way. The Stepford Wife quality of the chick in the picture doesn't help. I don't know about you, but I look like that in the morning when I warm up some water for tea.
First of all, I can't just put something in it and walk away. I am compelled to stand in front of it and wait. At some point I realize maybe that's not a good thing, so I take a step or two back.
By then I feel like all the cells in my body are cooking, and my scalp starts to tingle. Again, I move further away, only by then I am feeling totally stupid and embarrassed by my neurosis.
So of course, I publish my idiotic behavior here. I'm a loser.
