The Story of An Absent-Minded Lilia

When was the last time you were making hummingbird food and melted a pan with a copper bottom? I did. Last summer. Yes, it was hummingbird food. Yes, that's how absent-minded I am. How was I supposed to know that if you leave a pot of 1/2 a cup of water boiling that eventually the water will evaporate and melt the pan? My mom came in where I was reading an awesome book, I was totally into it, like I was a character, then my mom said, "Do you smell that?" "No," I said. Then I stepped out of the room. I didn't know burning metal has a smell, but apparently, it has. It doesn't smell good. Don't try it. I wouldn't buy it as a perfume, either. No one would be your friend. Or come within 50 feet of you. Then I ran into my kitchen, grabbed the pot and threw it into the sink. Then I did the next stupid thing. I turned the water on. Yeah, you're not supposed to do that to a flaming-hot pan. It started making really scary popping noises, and my mom started yelling at me, and I was crying, but then I was laughing too, because, oh my gosh, I just MELTED a pot! (Of course, I didn't laugh until my mom had left the room). So the hummingbirds starved that day. Sorry little fellas. So the next time you go to make hummingbird food, don't read a book at the same time. Or at least do it when you're parents aren't home.
