Have you seen the bags that are for baking potatoes in the microwave? They look something like this:
We had one at our house. I loved my baked potato bag. (Notice that I am using the past tense!) The cozy house almost got a lot cozier recently.
I was baking a casserole in the oven for supper one night, and thought that I’d microwave some potoatoes using my baked potato bag, which I’ve done many times before. No big deal. So I wrapped them in paper towels and put them in the bag and set the microwave for 8 minutes, all per the instructions that came with the bag.
8 minutes later, microwave beeped to tell me the potatos were done. And when I opened the microwave, imagine my surprise when flames lept out at me! The bag was on fire! Eeks! Flames! What to do? So I grabbed a cup of water…and then another…and threw it in the microwave (which was still plugged in…) And this is all that is left of my beloved baked potato bag.
What a sad day at the cozy house. I am just glad we still have a cozy house. 🙂
