Alrighty, then - Analyze This.
I was on a college campus during winter break studying in a heated, indoor grass hilled atrium.
Under the atrium, there was a huge walk in kiln that could fire as little as one piece, and the piece came out of the kiln at room temperature. I wondered if anyone could accidentally get caught in there.
The cafeteria had assigned random seating so you had to sit with people you didn’t know, and each person was given a different question that you had to ask your table mates.
They had 40 different types of flavored popcorn, so I ordered the largest bucket so I could taste them all. When they showed me a sample piece it was twice as big as a popcorn kernel and looked wet. At first, I just thought they were super fresh. Then I realized instead of saying “popcorn” I’d ordered a taste of all the flavors of candy coated shrimp. I was stuck with an $80 bucket of moist and only partly crunchy caramel, blueberry-vanilla, chocolate mint, tangerine and cinnamon, etc. flavored shrimp.
I did make a nice piece of pottery, though: a mini tea pot with a matching serving tray and tea leaf strainer.
PS. Before you ask: I had egg drop soup and dumplings for dinner.
