Bill dutifully reads the news on his iPad every morning. He will often share interesting headlines or stories with me. The other morning, he was reading the local Denver news, and he said to me, “Hmmm, a woman’s oven exploded.”
“Well, that’s not good,” I said. “Was she injured or killed?”
“No,” he replied. “But there were apparently shards of glass all over her kitchen. And the oven wasn’t even turned on.”
He read for a few seconds more, and then added, “This isn’t the first time that same oven exploded. It happened to her once before.”
Now, I have to tell you all something, just as I told him: If my oven explodes, there is no do-over. I’m getting a new oven. I’m firm on that.
I will tell you something else, once he confirmed that no one had been injured, I laughed until I had tears rolling down my cheeks.
Have a great weekend.
