Once, on one of the many visits to my sister...

       I decided making a panini on the toaster oven was a good idea. I decided toasting the bread first was a good idea. Spraying unknown amounts of olive oil on two pieces of bread was a good idea. Leaving the bread on high was a good idea.
       But, who knew? Oil catches fire. Lesson I should have learned already. After all, it was not my first kitchen mishap.
       The only good idea that day was having the presence of mind to unplug the flaming toaster oven. Before pouring water on the fire.

       So I still owe Mary a toaster oven. And Athan a blanket. But I'm not saying what happened to that one...
