Have a small appliance that stopped working ages ago? Or maybe a small appliance that suddenly stopped working at a horrible time and led to an unfortunate event (stitches)?
Consider reverse engineering as some family fun (and cheap therapy in the case of stitches).
In my case, I had been wanting to give Sam the opportunity to reverse engineer something for the last month. Then the unfortunate events happened and my first instinct was to chuck the mixer into the trash. Thankfully I thought it through, cut off the power source, and after confirming it was safe, handed over the screwdriver.
We now have a new rule in the house that no one is allowed to break small appliances on purpose!
