r.i.p. robin's egg blue teapot without a whistle.
you were given to me by a dear friend from high school at a bridal shower, but now you must inevitably go into the dumpster. i will miss you. you were very cute and i enjoyed you daily, but you were a quite mediocre teapot. you were by martha stewart, but you did not work that well. you were robin's egg blue, but you did not whistle.
which is why
you i almost burned the house down.
you see, i wanted to make coffee around 10 am. i got distracted and went upstairs to make a dress. this dress.
(this happens way too often, i'm afraid)
i kept smelling something but i thought it was just my iron that i was using.
i walk downstairs around 11:30 to find this.
it is burned, browned (which is funny because now it really looks like a robin's egg.), and the handle busted off because of the heat. all the water evaporated so its kind of cracked, too.
i'm a cottonheadedninnymuggins.
it has been replaced with the equal amount of sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows in the form of a yellow teakettle.
mr. yellow teapot, you were really expensive (i just found it for 15 bucks less than what i paid...blast....but i'm supporting local businesses, so whatever) and i spent my birthday money on you, but you had a whistle and you are yellow and happy, so i gladly brought you home.
