didja know that you can burn water?

Yes, yes you can. It's cold and (thus) dry here in Kansas, so I put a pot of steaming water on the stove in addition to running my feeble humidifier. My skin gets very unhappy in the ultra-dry, cold winter.

Well, here I was, minding my own business reading class papers, when I noted an odd scent in the air. I recognized it right away (um, I've done this before) and hurried to the kitchen where, alas, the bottom of the pan was covered in brown.

Now, mind you, nothing has occupied said pan except for water for days now. Yet the smoking pan.

I just burned water.

Ha! (of course you know you actually burned all the crud found in Lawnrence water).

Heh, yeah, but it's funnier to say "I burned water." Technically, in the broadest civilian definition, "water" is H2O and all the other stuff in it, too.

You broke me.

I suspect you burned lime and grime -- the usual contents of water in this area. Put some vinegar and water in the pan to try to clean it.

My ex-husband could do that. ;)
