It was 3:00 in the afternoon and I'm looking for something to eat. I went to the fridge and saw left over pizza from last night so I decided to go with that. It was cold and of course I don't want that so I thought of something to heat it with. I remember Bruce used this called microwave oven that one time he heated his food. I searched for it and I stood there taking time figuring out what to do. This wasn't present during my time so I have no idea how to use it.
I opened it—as I recalled Bruce doing it—and put in slices of pizza inside. The next thing I remember was him punching what it seemed to be codes to the machine and so I did.
There were numbers and a start button so I decided to push start but nothing happened. I arched my brow and scratched my head. I don't know how to make this thing work.
I took a deep sigh and punch in some buttons again. I am hungry and I want food. "Dammit" I uttered. Even Captain America can get annoyed if he's hungry.
One more try and if this thing doesn't work I might smash it into pieces and we don't want that.
Again it didn't work.
I was about to get the pizza off the machine when I heard a soft laugh behind me.
It was my husband. Tony. Watching me quietly while I—obviously starving—figure out how this thing works. I gave him 'the glare' which in eye contact language means tell-me-how-this-thing-works-or-i-will-smash-it-into-pieces.
He chuckled and he decided to put me out of my misery and helped me.
First he put the plug in.
He smiled at me "First you have to put the plug in capsicle" he said with a calm voice. I know he's mocking me. Why hadn't I think of putting the plug in? I wanted to face palm myself but instead I smiled at him.
"And then you push this" he punched the on button.
"And this" and he punched 60 into the machine which meant it would be heated for 60 seconds.
"And lastly. . ." he punched start and I saw the light in the machine and my pizza spinning inside.
"And that Captain is how you use the microwave" he turned to look at me and grinned.
Now I know. But more importantly I will be able to eat! "Thank you Tony" I told him.
There was a "ding" sound which told me that my pizza was done so I took it out and put it on my plate.
"Thanks Tony. I owe you one." I said and I started munching on my food.
"No problem. Maybe you can repay me later" he winked at me and I know what he meant by that. I choked.
"Yeah maybe not that kind of repay" I looked at him as he went to his lab. I already finished my share and decided to go for seconds and this time I heated the pizzas.
