Burnt offerings, Cliff Edge, and terrified – All these words go together nicely in one charred package.
My first attempt with a microwave didn’t end well. Burnt offerings, and my doughnuts looked they had been terrified by a terrible dragon. I opened the door, and took them from this new fangled machine. At a cliff edge, the plate was tipped, and the charred remains thrown in the bin. How long had I put them in for? Five minutes – to be fair I reckon I was lucky not to have burnt the house down.
True story, back when microwaves were new.
