Captive Audience

I was at the grocery store and decided that baked potatoes couldn't possibly be THAT hard to make, so I decided to buy them in preparation for my weekly dinner with Megan. As I blankly stared at all of the potato options at Harris Teeter, this is what was going through my head: sweet potatoes (gross), microwavable sweet potatoes (still gross but intrigued by the microwavable part), MICROWAVABLE RUSSET POTATOES (bingo!).

I was thrilled by this discovery and that they were individually wrapped so I didn't have to buy a metric ton of them when I only wanted two. Anyway, the next morning I was very excited when I announced my great discovery to Carter, to which she replied, "Um, Cec, all potatoes are microwavable."

I mean, this potato is pre-washed AND freshness verified! Megan appreciated where I was coming from and understood my confusion that regular potatoes could be microwaved (non pre-washed and without verified freshness, of course). It not only provided a tasty dinner but also a good amount of entertainment. On top of that, this is the longest 365 post this year. You're welcome.

  1. My favorite part about those instructions is the warning that the potato may whistle. That's something I would be interested to hear.
