I am so sad. This little guy went kaput on me:

I got him back in 2015 and he was my constant lunch companion for 3 years. I gave him some time off during the summer, but for the rest of the year I could count on him to have my lunch hot and ready every day.

And then I did the unthinkable…I went out to lunch one day at work on a Friday and I thought I had turned him off, but I accidentally left him plugged in at work over the weekend. For 3 days he work his little heart out to keep warm the lunch I would never eat. It completely zapped all his energy and now he has nothing left to give. I may or may not have behaved like this when I realized what I had done:

So let’s have a moment of silence for my Lil Lunch Buddy. Godspeed my friend, you served your purpose well.
