Thinking Inside the (microwave) Box

Hey, I hear water running!

No problem, I'm on it.

(minutes later)

Hey, I still hear water running!

I said I'm on it and I'm on it.

(microseconds later)

Why is the water running? Why is the water still running? I can hear it!

OK, I'm waiting for it to get hot, OK? It takes time. Small pipe, long distance. Rate times time times pipe equals not soon hot, OK?

I got it, I got it! Sheeeesh, what a grouch. How much hot water do you need?

About a cup.

One cup?

Yeah, maybe a bit less.

Well, why didn't you put a cup of water in the microwave for 30 seconds. That would have been much quicker, don't you think?

No, I don't think.

I would say "obviously" but I won't.

Thank you for your restraint.

By the way, when's dinner?

About two hours, as soon as I get this butter churned ...
