the devil is in my oven.

Tyler and I are going through a REALLY hard trial right now.
It's been going on for about 4 days now.
For what ever reason, about 4 days ago, our oven's timer decided to become possessed by the devil.
We have never used the built in timer.
We have never touched the built in timer.
But apparently the stupid built in timer wanted some attention.
Every 5 minutes, it buzzes.
(out of nowhere.)
It's the kind of buzz that makes you want to rip your ears off.
(it sounds like the alarm clock I had in second grade.)
When it starts, it won't stop, unless you jiggle the knob.
Our oven is pretty old school...so it's not a digital timer.
And there is NO off button.
It just keeps going and going and going and going and going.
After the jiggle, it shuts up for a minute...five minutes if we're lucky...
(I wish I was exaggerating)
 and then BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
Have you ever seen the devil? No? Well, there he is!
 All day long.
24/7.
It wakes us up in the night,
it welcomes us home when we walk through the door.
Tonight,
it started going off while Tyler was in the shower.
I was instantly irritated.
I calmly walked into the kitchen and jiggled it.
the jiggle did nothing...
and I swear it was the loudest and most obnoxious it's ever been.
I did a more forceful jiggle.
BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!
I felt the cray take over my body....
and before I knew it,
I had Tyler's tool box in front of me.
I had no idea what I was going to do with the tool box...
but I was going to do something.
It was serious.
I grabbed a pair of pliers.. 
maybe if I jiggled the timer with pliers...
BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!
ok....ok....
maybe if I BEAT THE HECK out of the timer...with pliers.
And that's exactly what I did.
I beat it.
And while I was beating it,
Tyler walked into the kitchen.
I heard him laughing,
so I laughed too....
because I knew if I didn't laugh,
I was going to cry.
Beating it did nothing except break some glass...and the knob.
(as you can see in the picture....)
So now it can't even be jiggled.
Tyler somehow got it to stop buzzing.
We've had about 10 consecutive minutes of silence, now.
If it starts again,
I'm either bringing out the hammer...
or the holy water.

Maybe you could wear ear muffs and the buzz wouldn't be so annoying. ;-) -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
