Blue Light Special

Sometimes you just don't quite know what to say.

8:30pm
Richard: Iiiiii'm hunnnnngry.
Erin: What do you want to eat?
Rich: I want to go out to eat.
Erin: Rich, I'm already in my jammies!
Richard makes popcorn.

9:30pm
Richard: Iiiiii'm hunnnnnnnnnnnngry! Why won't you go out with me?
Erin: Rich! It's 9:30! I'm not going anywhere, you goofball.
Richard heats up a bowl of soup.

10:30pm
Richard: Iiiiiiii'm ssooooooooo HUUUUNNNNNNNNGGGGRRRRYYYY!
Erin: OK! Let's go. I'll put clothes on.
Richard: No. It's ok. We don't have to go anywhere. [SIGH]
Erin: Ok, why don't you have some peanut butter toast? That will help fill you up.
Richard: We have that?!
Erin: Yes...
Richard hops up and goes into the kitchen
Shortly thereafter, the lights in the house flicker, the microwave is heard, followed immediately by a flash of blue light and the distinct sound of electronics dying.
Richard: Oops.
Erin: WOW! What did you do?
Richard: I put the peanut butter in the microwave.

Peanutbutter in the microwave? That's a new one.

I am so ashamed that Rich has fallen into the Dead Head zone only three weeks from Due Day. Quick Baby Proof your house now for the sake and safety of this baby. I can’t stop shaking my head in disbelief. SNAP out of it Richard.

first question: Why did the peanutbutter need to go in the microwave?
second question: How could he still be hungry after 3 sessions of eating?

I thought you were the pregnant one-sympathy eating, that's it!

To Richard: Phone + your voice + dinner = Happy Erin and you without leaving the house

Did he leave the FOIL LID on the peanut butter when nuking it? Sometimes Wade does stuff like that just for fun. Gives me a near heart attack.
