Microwave Madness

Dear Diary

 
When I was home at Christmas I stumbled upon something about my parents that weirded me out at the same time as impressing the hell out of me. My mum and stepdad Greg have been together since I was about 15 or 16 and they moved in together when I was 17. And apparently when they were blending their homes, they decided they needed a new microwave. And much to my surprise, that very same microwave is still in my parent's home, 23 years and 5 houses later. This blows my mind! The only think that I can think of that I've owned that long is a leather biker jacket that my heavy metal boyfriend bought me on my 18th birthday but I'm too ashamed to bring that out of the back of the coat cupboard, yet here are my parents, living in a relatively new, very nice house on the south coast of England, owning a 23 yr old microwave, that still works! It blows my mind!
