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