English is Such a Funny Language, part 438,374

It’s so interesting how some things burn “up”, while other things burn “down”.

For example:

Today, after emptying the contents of my favorite pot into a Corningware container to put in the fridge, instead of setting it in the sink (as any rational human would do), I just set it back on the burner.  Then I decided to make myself some tea, so put the kettle on.  Then turned on…the wrong burner.

So, the bad news is, I foolishly burned my favorite $100 pot UP:


This is after 30 minutes of scrubbing with steel wool and baking soda; I think it’s a goner.

The good news is, I did not burn the house DOWN.



What a funny language.
