I really do not know that anything has ever been more exciting than diagramming sentences. —Gertrude Stein

Well, it's not really new. I used to be obsessed, and now it's back. I've been on a major Earl Gray tea kick. I'm drinking like, 5 cups a day. It's so good. I can't help myself. I was drinking one tea bag at a time in a small cup. Now I've graduated:
large travel size mug
2 tea bags
a few Tbsp fat-free half and half
a few tsp white sugar
Happiness. Mmmm. So good.
A few minutes ago I put some water in my fabulous enamel tea kettle to boil.
I got on the internet.
I forgot about said kettle.
I remembered it in a panic!
Oh my. Ohhhh Jesus!
All of the water had evaporated and my precious tea kettle melted onto my stove coil. Melted. I loved that kettle. My mother-in-law gave it to me. I loved it! Because tea is so much more than a delicious, warm beverage. It's an experience. And I love all of the beautiful accoutrements that go along with tea. Like my kettle. And now it's gone. Now I'll have to boil my water in an ugly, although very useful, skillet.
So back to my issha... I deferred to Google... my preferred method of problem-solving. "They" said to just replace the coil. This whole thing just makes me feel really nervous.
If anybody knows of another way of getting it cleaned, please help a sista out!
Now I need to go and unwind.
I think I'm gonna go have a cup of tea.
