how..... how do you melt a teapot ?
okay here we go…
So the very first time I went over to my now-wife-then-girlfriend’s apartment for dinner, she handled everything, she made us rice and chicken and wouldn’t let me do anything. So the next time I came over I asked if I could help, and she grudgingly agreed to let me boil water.
Now, I had only ever used stovetop tea kettles, which are all metal and you heat them directly on the stove. But cricket had a plastic, self heating kettle that just had to be filled with water and you flipped a switch and it would heat itself. You can probably guess where this is going…
Yeah long story short I put the plastic kettle on the stove and tuned it on. Cue us smelling burning plastic 3 min later… Luckily I didn’t burn her apt down, but the damage had been done, to both her kettle and my ego.
She eventually did let me back in the kitchen but she never let me forget lol
