September 19-Somethin’ Challenge: Day 12

12. When did you first have a microwave in your home? Were you afraid that it would make you sick or did you embrace this “new” technology?

I don’t think that my parents got a microwave until sometime after I left home.  David and I had one in our very first house.  My aunts and uncle got Grandma and Grandpa Spence a microwave, which they absolutely did not want.  They were afraid of it, afraid of it causing cancer.  I think the only time it was used was when someone else was at their apartment.  Whether the two were related or not, Grandpa did die consumed with cancer.   Laynie and I were with him when he passed away.

Please add the link to your 19-Somethin’ post in the comment section or to the linky on the challenge page. Thanks!

Please be sure to read David’s 19-Somethin’ post over at Random Thoughts and Observations.
