|My New Red Teapot!|
Therefore, even though the truth is that I did not let my former teakettle boil dry...the whistler broke off some time ago...and I've noticed the past few times that I've put the teakettle on to boil that I have only discovered it boiling just in the nick of time...before it totally boiled dry...and there wasn't enough water left in the kettle to even make one cup of tea! So, before tragedy strikes...I decided to do something about it...and I went out and bought myself a new teakettle...a whistling teakettle, that is also BRIGHT RED...so that I will not only hear it whistling, I will also notice it sitting brightly on my stove, all red and shiny and new, and I will pay more attention to it before something bad happens to it!
I know some of you probably have no clue what I am talking about, but I thought I would share my confession with you today...and perhaps there may be someone who may smile and say, "Oh yes, I perfectly understand!"
