September 19-Somethin' Challenge: Day 12

To learn more about this challenge and to see all of the questions, please click here.


12. When did you first have a microwave in your home? Were you afraid that it would make you sick or did you embrace this "new" technology?

I don't think that my parents got a microwave until sometime after I left home.  David and I had one in our very first house.  My aunts and uncle got Grandma and Grandpa Spence a microwave, which they absolutely did not want.  They were afraid of it, afraid of it causing cancer.  I think the only time it was used was when someone else was at their apartment.  Whether the two were related or not, Grandpa did die consumed with cancer.   Laynie and I were with him when he passed away.

Please add the link to your 19-Somethin’ post in the comment section or to the linky on the challenge page. Thanks!

  1. I wonder if the old ones did cause cancer.

    1. I have often wondered that myself. I'm not entirely sure that those available nowadays are 100% safe. They are convenient, sure, but often things that save us time cost us in other ways.

  2. We bought the small Amana microwave which didn't even have a window. After a couple of months, I gave it to our office for the office kitchen. I traded it for a Selectric typewriter. My boss said that was the best trade he ever made.

    1. It sounds like you made out pretty good in that trade, too. A typewriter is way cooler than a microwave. :)

      We have an old Royal typewriter, one of those that weighs about a zillion pounds. I'd love to be able to use it at some point, but finding ribbons for those things isn't so easy anymore.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed week!
