Celebrating Women for the Real World

Morning Madness

Humpday was to be an ordinary day.  Wake up; roll out of bed; make my way to the kitchen and drink some liquid life that is coffee (the only way to orient me to person, place and time every morning).  I then grabbed some pop tarts (yes breakfast of champions) and put them in the toaster.

I started smelling something very strange and turn around and the toaster is on FIRE!  Yes, there were flames coming out of the toaster.  We all survived (except for a dish rag), the house was full of smoke not to mention the smell of an electrical fire that is just nasty.

Yes we had flames

The aftermath!

I guess the thing that horrified me is that was was planning to get a new toaster and was going to give this one to Sheri’s oldest son who is off at college. The thought that this could have happened to him sent a chill down my spine. Once a mom, always a mom and I have known this boy since he was 6 years old and he might as well be mine.


On a good note we did get a new one. G2’s request was to have four slots for toast. Here’s the new one, and hopefully safe one.

The new BAMF!

OMG…did I really just do a post on my toasters?!?!

Yes, I am officially in Stepford!

    We, too, have gone to the four slot toaster. And, just a couple of weeks ago we had a pop tart experience. The son put a couple in with the frosting on them. Sure enough, smoke starts billowing out and we couldn’t even get them out. I was near panic at the thoughts of fire. I told him never again with the toasting of the ones with the frosting on top!
