So, my parents are visiting this past weekend, and I'm making the one tasty thing I'm capable of cooking... pancakes. I get all the ingredients in a bowl, and pull out the mixer to whip it up. Thing is, something came 'loose' in the mixer the last time or so that I used it. And the beaters have been running wonky since then. They're out of sync, bumping into each other, kinda pitches the wrong direction. So I'm hoping it'll make it through at least one more batch of pancakes.
WHIRRRRRRRRRR CLACK CLUNK WHIRRRRRRRR CLACK CLUNK.........
This is not good..... I've got 3 boys, and 4 adults already waiting probably an hour too long to eat breakfast.
Yeah yeah, I could use a hand mixer - if I had one. I could use a spoon or whisk, if I wanted my arm to fall off (this is a rather large batch of pancakes).
Thinking..... thinking......smoke smell..........Bingo!
Off to the garage..... and..........
Mmmmmmmmmmm, 14.4 volt pancakes ;)
