Meet Rilla our rice cooker.
She was already broken, when I met her. (She belongs to DD1.)
Please notice the “expert” electrical repair with black tape. (eye roll)
She worked okay, I was just always nervous about being electrocuted to death. But, other than that, everything was ok.
Until I melted her leg!! OOPSIE!
Ya see, I was
making trying to make pudding. And Rilla was resting on the stove top, (ceramic top). Now, DD1 cooks all the time with things on the stove. Because of our tiny kitchen, that’s where they live. So, it shouldn’t have been a problem, right?? Yeah, right.
As you saw, big problem!! I didn’t have on my glasses, so I turned on the wrong eye by mistake, and was wondering why the pudding pot wasn’t getting hot. Until I smelled melting plastic, and looked over at Rilla. She was screaming, “I’m melting!” I quickly snatched her up, put her on the top of the microwave, and hurried back to the stove to turn off that eye!
Then I had to try to clean up the melted plastic, off the eye. Probably poisoned myself, from the toxic fumes, along the way. Is that what’s wrong with me lately?? Rilla’s Revenge??
Oh yes, in case you’re wondering, yes, I did manage to make the pudding without endangering any other lives. I got smart, and put on my glasses before I tried again!
So, the only question remaining, do I put her down like a horse with a broken leg??? Or do I make her an orthotic leg?? She probably is not willing for me to touch her again!! And I really wouldn’t blame her.
