Another appliance bites the dust.
Yesterday I was doing my typical pressing the microwave buttons at the speed of light behavior. Its a quick shooter instinct. I like to see how many time combinations I can cycle through and still arrive at my standard cook everything at 3 minutes setting. As soon as I hit the enter button on my last iteration all my senses were rocked by four intense crackling pops, like fire crackers inches from my nose. Strange. No sparks, no smoke, no smell. Being shell shocked, and a software trouble shooter by day, I tried to reproduce the problem. Nothing. The microwave powered on but it sounded a little different and upon further testing I declared it dead.
With each instance I am slowly accepting my power.
