The magic box

In my home we have a magic box..... It looks a little like this one.

What? You say it looks like a microwave. Call it what you like but in my house it holds some magical powers.
When you hear those 5 beeps that means whatever is in the box is ready, my dog, who will only leave my side get excited to eat or go out to pee can be found standing on her back legs dancing like a ballerina. She knows that sometimes pepperoni is on whatever is being reheated.
When you open the door the tiny kitten that lives with us will come out from wherever she is sleeping and meow....over and over because her food gets warmed in the magic box. She can pop those little claws out and climb completely up your legs and end up on your shoulder in 5 seconds if the magic box is running.....which is great as long as you aren't wearing shorts. I quit wearing shorts around the house as much since she moved in.....I was running out of bandaids.
Superhubby loves to hear the magic box make that pop, pop sound that means the magic box is about ready to spit out some popcorn. That sound also makes the dog happy. She and superhubby love to share some popcorn.
If you get a few minutes go over and wish these people a little luck. Once again a member of their family is going to have to fight cancer.....they have had WAY more than their share.

Ooooh, I love our magic box. It makes hubby heat his own food up. And that IS magic!

Awww, Katy, I miss you and The Monk so much; I can't wait to get back to you guys! The two of you had me laughing so hard. Hey, remember this one..."grass, gas or ass, no one rides for free." BWA!
