Mom likes this stuff for breakfast. She has to put some in a pot of boiling water the night before, then turn off the heat and let it sit. In the morning she has to remember to start cooking it 30 minutes before she wants to eat it. Lotsa work.
So she got one of these. It's a teeny crooked pot. She has a big crooked pot, but it's too big for one serving of oatmeal in the morning. The night before, she puts the water and oatmeal in the pot and turns it on low. In the morning she gets up and the oatmeal is ready to eat.
This works fine every night the first week she has it. Then on Sunday morning, she makes some eggs and toast. Sunday night, she gets everything ready in the little crooked pot. She turns it on before she goes to bed.
In the morning, it looked like this:Can you see what she did? She forgot to plug it in. So she had cold cereal for breakfast. She figures she's not gonna let that happen again. She dumps the stuff out, and puts it in a little container to dump back in that night. She sprays some slippery stuff inside so the oatmeal won't stick to the walls. That night, she makes sure the thing is plugged in. She makes sure she turns it on. She makes sure the thing is hot when she gets up in the middle of the night because Mr Hot is giving her Flashes.
This morning, she gets up to this:
I'm trying really hard not to snicker.
Okay, I'm not trying that hard.
