Inktober 2018 – Day 19

Scorched.

I figured out how to make brown rice. It’s perfect every time. I put it in a sauce pan, heat it until it starts popping. I add water and boil until it’s al dente. Perfect.

Unless…I heat it on high and walk away for something shiny, forget the rice is on HIGH and the rice burns to the pan. I run to the stove, put the pan on the carpet on the porch thinking “hot pad.” Guess what? That hot pad melted onto the bottom of the pot. All kinds of chemicals stuck to the pot. Black rice in the bottom of the pan.

I was living an I love Lucy episode. I used to watch I love Lucy when I was four. She frustrated me when she would get into trouble. I would watch wishing she wouldn’t do those crazy things she would get involved in.

Me and rice are going to pay attention to each other from now on.
