Last week, I received a text from my adult son inquiring about cooking a turkey in the microwave.
A rather large turkey.
In the microwave.
Being a parent whose first instinct was to tell him that he was nuts and that a 25 pound beast very well might cause his microwave to break free from its mounting and as it crashed, would cause some sort of nuclear explosion.
That's what I wanted to say.....
But trying to be a supportive mom whose son would learn from his mistakes,
while hoping he would catch on to my subtle (or not) comments that it was a crazy idea, we had the following text conversation.
I even went so far as to send him this helpful tip.
You know, all subtle like.
He never responded, so I figured he had give up his notion to nuke a turkey the size of a small child.
I read about a prank that is going viral.
I actually laughed out loud.
Both for the fact that I fell hard for it and in relief that my son wasn't really asking that question.
I don't think.
