When I was a kid, I was over the top with joy when they invented microwave ovens! What an awesome invention. The microwave saves a lot of electricity when you use it, because you do not have to turn the oven on to heat up your food. My mom used to arrange our food on the microwave in a circle and I always wondered why she did. I used to give her crap about it. When I microwaved, I piled the food on the plate and stuck it in. It always took longer than my mom's food did. But I was a know-it-all so I never changed until I got older.

Then, I understood that when you arrange it in a circle, it heats up more quickly and evenly. As usual, my mom was right!
