This picture has nothing to do with the post. It just makes me laugh.
Perhaps the previous post was a little melodramatic… maybe… nah those feelings are real. This week has been better, but I think yesterday the stress finally came out and I was sickish. The flu has been terrible and for some reason we have been protected from that. Thank you God. I know people that have been out for weeks. That’s enough about that. 2006/2007 was my year to blog a bout puking.
So I have this really (kind of disgusting) microwave that I try to avoid using. OUr Lovely nice one broke just before our move and so the junky one that was left by the previous residents is ours now. How nice. And to make it extra special nice, they didn’t even clean it. EEEEW.
Again moving on.
So my eldest Tweedle, heard this thing in science class. You know it must be true. The way to test your Microwave to see if it is leaking, is to stick you cell phone in, close the door, and call it. If the microwave is properly sealed, then your phone should NOT receive the call. He wanted to try it. I made him swear and sign wavers and everything that he would not turn it on with my phone in there. He looked at me like he has since he was a Twaddler, head cocked, eyebrow lifted, and said “Really!?” Well what am I to do when I can’t play solitaire anymore?
So in the microwave it went.
The call was made.
The cell phone rang.
This concerns me on a few levels. If microwaves and cell phones work on the same wave lengths, who thought of that? Shouldn’t my ear be cooked when I talk for about 1 minute, never mind my brain.
Research has told me that they do not, in fact, run on the same wave length, but they are close. Snoops couldn’t confirm or deny that your microwave should be blocking calls. I don’t like microwaves that much but sometimes they are a necessary evil (popcorn, my egg sandwich etc.) I have been thinking about getting rid of the old one for 4 years now but I the thing stopping me is weather to get a new one or not. Maybe I should test the display models in the store. Does anyone out there know anything about this?
