Confession, I had this lofty goal of not buying a microwave for my apartment. I was fairly certain I could re-heat what I wanted in the oven, or on the stove top. All it took was cooking a frozen pizza to change my mind.
My pizza wasn’t even half cooked before the fire alarm started chirping. So I opened all the windows, still chirping.
So I started fanning it with the door. Still chirping.
So I turned on the overhead fan. Still chirping.
So I googled “how to disable fire alarm”. Still chirping. And now I am reminded how serious home fires are.
So I took out the battery of the fire alarm (just for the night). And confessed to my best friend that she was right, I’m buying a microwave.
Pizza was cold by the time I could eat it, but at least nothing burned?
I really wish I had a microwave to warm up this pizza…
And now the first step on every recipe is “remove battery from the fire alarm”.
And all the other people living in my complex know what time I had dinner.
