My microwave oven died last night.

It has always been a trusted friend.
We have shared many a recessitated frozen dinner together through the years.

I guess it's back to The Old Pioneering Spirit and the Electric Stove.
(I could use the counter space.)

I've always been surprised that I do like to cook. I guess having a mother with a degree in Home Economics didn't hurt. She taught it in highschool for years. She also has a degree in German and taught that as well. But I also like the convenience of a quick hot meal if I'm pressed for time or just too damn lazy.

She taught me at a young age how to do almost everything around the house. I hated it then, but when I moved out on my own I was glad that I could take care of myself and my place.

Thanks, Mom.

I've never understood why anyone in this day and age complains about house work.

Laundry: Chuck it in, hit the button, fold.
Dishes: Chuck it in, hit the button, unload.
Floors: Plug it in, push it around, put it away.
Bathroom: Well, I do kinda complain about that one, myself. WTF is that stuff on my shower curtain. If any part of my body touches the shower curtain I start all over, head to toe. Yuck! But if it gets too bad, throw it away and get another.

The common theme to most of this is the machines doing almost all of the hard work while I watch TV.
(Be glad you weren't around when it died. SAD Day)

When my Dad's Mother died (Before I was born.) they had to get a house keeper until my Grandpa remarried. Less modern conveniences and more work. Grandpa just didn't have the time or the energy to run his own business and the household.

Maybe it was much tougher to be a bachelor in those days. Maybe it was just a mindset.

I wonder if the number of confirmed bachelors and single people in the world will increase as technology continues to make our lives easier?

All I know is that if my TV died I would have a funeral for it, I love it so much.

I had mine cremated. I think it would have wanted it that way.
I suspect the damn repair shop lost its ashes.
I found a cigarette butt in the ones they gave me.
I scattered them in the parking lot at Circuit City.
