“Only by observing this condition would the results of our work be regarded as fully conclusive and as having elucidated (explained) the normal course of the phenomena.”
I turned into Pavlov’s dog last week.
In an attempt to heat up a mug of lukewarm coffee at work, I inserted said mug of liquid lusciousness into the microwave.
Then I pressed a button.
There was no beep.
I pressed another button.
Still no beep.
Well, is this thing working?
It’s a used but new-to-us microwave, so I wasn’t quite sure.
I checked the microwave’s functioning ability and it appeared to be doing its job.
It was creepy and eerie and not right with the universe.
Why isn’t the microwave beeping?
Microwaves are supposed to beep.
Yet, it was working just fine.
Hot coffee in hand, I looked again at the control panel and finally noticed…
This microwave has a mute button.
Like a remote control.
Someone had pressed the mute button.
It wasn’t right.
How am I supposed to salivate over my coffee if there is no beeping?
I pressed the mute button to unmute.
It beeped again.
Yes, this is how it’s supposed to be.
Beep, beep, beep.
All was right with the universe and the microwave.
I had a sudden urge to eat a donut.
And a chocolate chip muffin.
