So the thing about the tech services microwave is that it tends to get the outside ring of my thawed container of lentils really really hot, leaving a cold-to-frozen lump in the center that warms up slowly as I stir it around back in my office eating lunch and loading and reloading Facebook while wondering what exactly I did to force all the energy to rush out of my body at 11:01 am leaving me exhausted and dulled like a bad knife. Solution: I took my spoon with me to the tech services microwave and used it to stir it around, stir it around, stir it around a few times during the lentils-reheating process. Hot through and through.
