I was in a hurry. It was almost 11 am, just one hour before lunch time. I just finished taking a bath and I needed to leave as soon as possible. I wanted to eat lunch before leaving but no viand was available.
There was only cold rice. I was not desperate to eat old rice alone. I hurriedly bought an egg. Broke it open to plate. Placed it inside microwave oven. Set the temperature to medium high and turned the timer to two minutes. I thought microwave oven cooking was way faster than frying it over the lpg flame. Added the fact that I needed to clean the dirty pan first.
While the microwave was dealing with the egg. I heard loud continuous popping sounds. Sounded like a police was chasing a criminal and the said culprit was about to break out of machine door.
After the run and chase stopped, I got the cooked egg. Wiped the oven walls and door clean. Ate my early lunch and left.
