Random nonsense

Here’s a new kitchen safety tip I just learned.

If you need to reheat a cup of coffee that you bought at Second Cup (or Starbucks if you’re a silly American), do not put the paper cup and dome lid in the microwave and leave it unattended for more than, say, 30 seconds.

The outcome is, shall we say, unexpectedly spectacular. If I had a digicam, I’d post a picture of the aftermath.

But at least the coffee still tastes OK . . . what’s left of it.
