A mediocre magician struggles to make her keep when Houdini comes to the city to perform.

3. Microwave

     My shock is forgotten as I smile brightly. The world is looking up. Life is okay.

     I plug the machine into the only outlet and slowly open a can of soup. I haven't eaten soup since the divorce happened. Two years ago.

     All is forgotten as I pop the little metal cylinder into the shining metal microwave and close the door. A message scrolls across the black screen:

     I narrow my eyes, confused. Is this a new model?

     Slowly opening the little door, I take out the can and set it on the floor. I close the door once again and press the small glowing start button. A new message plays across the screen.
