this weekend, we shopped for a new microwave.
we had the great idea to put one above the stove.
we could install it ourselves.
as it turned out, there was not enough room.
so we bought a new countertop microwave instead.
in the process,
we learned that this vent,
the one we have used for eleven years,
the one we rely on to remove smells from our kitchen,
the one i use almost everytime i cook,
doesn't go anywhere.
it just circles the smelly air back into the room.
