I now have a new nickname at work due to an incident yesterday. In our grocery office at work we have a microwave and I usually eat lunch there because it is less crowded than the break-room. Well I had accidentally over cooked one of my rolls and it was very hard and nasty. Well me and some of the guys(Mostly Me) wondered what would happen to a roll if you left it in for three minutes. So I decided to try an experiment. So I threw in a roll and shut the door.

Then I set the timer and we all got busy talking too much and forgot about it.

All of the sudden we smelled something burning and I whipped around in my chair and threw open the microwave oven.

My poor little roll looked something like this.

And the office smells awful. I am sure it will take a few days to air out. I have also been banned from the microwave. The funniest part though was when another manager came walking by and seen all three of us gathered around in a circle, hands held high, praying to the sprinkler system in the ceiling. I think it really confused him for a minute.

Rob, that is absolutely hilarious! No offense of course, but I have to say leave it to a guy to do something so silly as to purposely burn a roll just for experiment's sake. Now I would never do that of course! No, I would burn it on accident, not because I was trying to overcook it; the result, however, would be the same! ;-) Actually, I've never done that, but I did do something else dumb once which you have just prompted me to blog about so you'll have to go read my blog instead of me putting it here. (How was that for a run-on sentence?) Anyway, live and learn, right?! Thanks for sharing with us your new nickname, Smokey! :-)

I don't think I'm going to let my kids read this one. Oh wait. It's a good thing they can't read. I wouldn't want them getting any ideas. You're awesome.
