A Blog Post About Nothing: Part 3 – Biscuit Broke My Stove

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Funny Stuff, General | Posted on 20-12-2008


Have you ever felt like the world was moving at the speed of light, yet you were just doing your own thing?  That’s how I’ve felt lately.  It seems everyone has tons of stuff to talk about on their blogs and Twitter.  I decided I was going to force myself to write a blog article this morning to start my Christmas vacation off and after thinking about what I was going to blog about it hit me.  I don’t have anything to blog or twitter about!  Call it a Blog / Twitter Slump if you will.  Then I started writing and things started to flow so much that I broke this post into a series of blog posts entitled “A blog post about nothing”, each one dealing with a different segment.

What’s Happening in Life

image Here is a story for you.  Back in May or June (I can’t remember exactly) I woke up and took a shower and decided to cook a sausage and biscuit for breakfast.  I buy the Mary B’s Southern Made biscuits.  If you have never had these biscuits, they are the best and taste just like what Mom used to make at home on Saturday mornings when I was growing up.  There were two biscuits left in the bag and they were stuck together.  I took them out and tried to get them apart by hand, then a knife, and then I made the mistake of hitting them on the stove.  I didn’t think I was hitting them that hard but on the third hit on the stove the biscuits crashed through the stove top.  Yep, I broke our stove with a biscuit! 

Our stove, rest it’s soul, had a ceramic top.  It just so happened I was hitting the stove with the biscuit right in the center in the weakest part.  Ellen got up later and saw the mess I had made.  By the way I did defeat the biscuits and cooked them for breaking my stove.  When she came in and saw the mess she said, “Great…. it will be Thanksgiving before you replace the stove.”. 

Since it was during the summer we really didn’t miss the stove that much.  I grill out a lot of fresh veggies on the grill during the summer so it wasn’t that bad.  Plus we had some other things like a griddle we could cook on.  As colder weather started getting here I started missing the stove more and more.  But for some reason kept putting off getting another one.  Not sure why.  I think it has to do with the whole experience of going to Home Depot or Lowes, I hate dealing with them because they make things so hard.  If I could have just ordered it online I would have done it already.

Fast forward to the day before Thanksgiving.  Ellen came in from work and I said we are going to town.  I didn’t tell her where we were going.  She got in and we went to Home Depot and ordered a stove.  Yep, I couldn’t let her prophecy come true.  We had a good laugh about it.  Technically she was right because the stove didn’t arrive until the next Wednesday after Thanksgiving but at least I had bought it *before* Thanksgiving.
