Makes my life easier- softening butter in the microwave

There is this spot on my counter where I leave my butter to warm when I have it intended for a baking project.  My husband knows not to use that butter.  But sometimes (many times) I will have an itch to bake something without previous planning.  The trouble with that is that my butter is cold.  Can you cream cold butter?  No.  In fact, I actually broke a beater blade on cold butter.  

So what is a gal to do?  Take the stick of butter straight from the fridge and put it into the microwave for 12 seconds.  Softens the butter without melting it.  Perfect.
