Let Stand One Minute

by William Jackson on 2006-08-10

I like to eat.

So, I was standing in front of the microwave at work about fifteen minutes ago reading the instructions on the bottom of my frozen lunch. Even though Iʼve cooked this kind of frozen lunch a half-dozen times, I was reading the instructions, because thatʼs what I do.

Iʼm glad I never have to worry about cooking at high altitudes.

The last step was, “Let stand in microwave 1 to 2 minutes.”

Yeah, right. Iʼm hungry and I am not going to wait “1 to 2 minutes” for my lunch that has already taken four minutes to thaw and cook in that strange machine.
