I consider myself a rule follower by nature. I like rules, I like to follow them and I'm usually of the mindset that the rules are probably there for a reason so I like to be respectful of that. I also think that in being a teacher, the idea of following directions is just built into my DNA.
There is one direction that I don't think I've ever followed in my adult life.
"Let it stand in microwave for 1-2 minutes."
I mean, come on, are people doing that? Am I the only one that throws caution to the wind and just pulls my microwaved goodness out when it is screaming hot rather than giving it a minute or two to stand? I feel confident I am not alone in this mini microwave rebellion.
