Hall of Shame

I burnt another bag of popcorn in the microwave at work. As I rushed to the smoldering microwave I made a plan of action: I whipped the door open, inhaled a lungful of smoke, pinched the bag shut burning my fingers and staining my hand and rushed out of the office, down the hall and out the back to the construction dumpster. I chucked the billowing bag of smoke up onto the heap and walked back to my desk. The construction workers were laughing and applauding. I smiled and bowed.

Now my office reeks and my fingers make me look like a chain smoker.

5 packs a day. Popcorn habit.

It's been down all morning. I actually thought it was you, with your lack-of-reader frustrations. But you wouldn't leave us.
