The other day, I was baking a pizza when I noticed something fishy. No, there’s no fish in the pizza. It’s just that while the base was already done, the cheese had barely melted. I realised to my horror that the upper element of the oven was out of order.
What would you do? Through the half-baked pizza away? I kept it, ruched down to the electrical shop at Waterway Point and grabbed a similar oven – cash and carry. About $300. I took turns with my son to carry the oven. We reached home, unboxed it, plugged it in and continued baking.
For many people, they would get so exasperated that they’ll throw the half-baked pizza away, geed it to the dog and order a pizza. Buying a new oven may come a few days, weeks or even months later.
The kind of person you see from this depends on whether you like me. My haters may say that I’m stubborn and impulsive. My fans may think I’m the very determined sort who won’t take no for an answer.
These are challenging times. There is no indication of when this coronavirus pandemic will end. It’s a good time to stay home and enjoy nice and healthy homecooked meals with our families.
