Give a kid a hot dog (and permission to microwave it…)

Have you ever given your 6 year old permission to cook her own hot dog in the microwave?

You know… since she knows her numbers and all…

44 seconds.

She knows how to press the number 4.



I gave her a nod of permission to proceed with her culinary feat… She INSISTED she could do it herself.

I threw up the white flag and headed out the door to a meeting or dance party or something.

But Daddy was home. I am only a half-terrible mother.

Oh that's baaaaaad.

Daddy was the one to discover the poor, petrified frankfurter… about 4 minutes into 44 minutes of cook time.

If you ever wondered what 4 minutes in the microwave will do to a hot dog… NOW YOU KNOW.

In case you were wondering.

Tune in next week when I tell you all about the time I found AN ENTIRE BANANA that was tucked in an seldom-explored corner for oh… SAY 2 YEARS. I will tell you this, hot dogs cooked for over 4 minutes and bananas left unattended for 2 years… look a lot alike.

    Wow! I am kinda impressed that it didn’t blow up. I had no idea a hot dog could do that.

    Oh. Um. That is totally gross — and cool at the same time.

    I know I have said it many times, but Lucy has a non-related twin over here who also likes to microwave all by herself, and also presses just a few too many numbers at once. Luckily, I was there to stop it before it turned into that! LOL But I have always wondered if I wasn’t, what would it look like.
    Thank you.

    Was totally expecting a gunk-covered micro pic! Not a petrified dog that looks like a 2 yr-old banana!
