    Earl will probably mess that up too.

    When I was in college, I used to get a kick out of how the girls usually didn’t know how to do laundry or cook when the need arose. The bread I would bake tended to disappear very fast.

    Men sharing the survival basics with the next generation of men. A heart-warming family scene.
    Excuse me… I seem to have something in my eye… no… no, it’s not a tear.

    “I’m hungry, where’s Gramma?” Sounds like Nelson’s been watching Silence of the Lambs.
    (Sorry, sleep deprived again today).

    My grandma bought one of the first Amana Radar Ranges – a microwave oven about the size of a Buick. First time she tried to bake a potato in the thing, she did what she’s always done in a conventional oven, and wrapped the spud in aluminum foil. We almost had to call the fire department. The radar range had a permanent scorch mark on the inside thanks to the reflected radiation.

    I’d rather cook something else.

    It’s possible to make a zucchini casserole that tastes like a pizza, but it never looks like a pizza.

    Better to show him how to dial a phone to call for pizza delivery. Keep pizza phone# on refrigerator for emergency.

    I remember the Amana!! A friend of mine’s mom just retired hers a couple of years ago.
    When I was about 9, my teacher saw one of the first microwave ovens at a science fair thing. She told the class that the man demonstrating it “cooked meat in it” (ie, warmed up some hotdogs). He offered samples but she refused—they couldn’t be cooked in such a short time!! We kids didn’t bother to mention that we knew you can eat hotdogs straight out of the package and that we did it all the time!

    I still have one of those in my basement. Guess I am really getting old.

    My first experience was a Magic Chef. The demo heated water for a minute and a half in a styrofoam cup. I didn’t believe it until it spilled on my hand. I cook both ways, but I love my microwave.

    From the time my grandson was able to get up on a step-stool, I began to teach him to cook. I’m a firm believer that men should be able to do more than throw a frozen pizza in the microwave. They also should be able to do their own laundry, clean house, and shop sensibly for groceries.
    For you younger readers, I can tell you from experience, how popular you will become. You’d be surprised nowadays, how many young women don’t posses those skills.
