Oops, won't do that again

I am sure there must be other threads like this, but I wasn't able to search one out. We all do things in the kitchen that in retrospect seem so obviously dumb. I managed a good one last night. I wanted to heat up some canned tuna before cooking with it (didn't want to burn the outside but still crisp up the outside a bit). All I can say is do not put canned tuna in the microwave (yes, i took it out of the can, I wasn't that clueless). I guess it would not have been so bad if I had stood there watching for the minute and a half i set the timer for, but I had to go put the laundry in the dryer....

I returned to find virtually no tuna left on the plate and almost all of it plastered over the whole interior of the microwave. I wiped it down, steamed a couple of wet sponges in it, and even zapped two consecutive lemons into near oblivion.... still smells slightly of tuna. I'm sure it will fade with time.... but please learn from my lesson... don't put tuna in the micro.
