My microwave has some paint blistering where the lazy susan rides around the bottom. Easy fix, right? Just a little paint?
I went to two hardware stores and a Lowe's. They looked at me like I asked for beryllium or a photon torpedo. They never heard of a paint that would be suitable for the inside of a microwave, so I returned home and found there is by looking it up on the internet.
Now, some of you are thinking: "Microwaves are fairy inexpensive, so just go buy a new one." That's real good advice, if you think the trade off for less than ten dollars of paint and a sheet of sandpaper is worth the price of a new microwave; especially one that is so familiar, you can cook in the dark without hitting the wrong button.
We throw away too much. I like things that become functional again with a little paint, some duct tape or a bent coat hanger. They keep my brain sharp and my wallet thicker.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
