FIRE IN THE HOLE
Two months ago my husband bought a dehydrator, a nifty gadget that reduces ten pounds of apples to less than a pound of mummified slices in a matter of hours.
“Think of the money we’ll save,” said Jeff.
“Seriously?” I rolled my eyes.
The final straw came when he dehydrated jalapeños.
A short time later the dog begged to be let out. With my howling baby tucked under one arm and a handkerchief over my stinging nose I blindly kicked open the front door.
It took a week to fumigate the house. It’ll take longer to let Jeff back in.
