Oven Talk
"I have a bunch of pots and pans to wash."
"Fortunately I don't have that problem, because I don't cook."
"Well I use a lot of pots, because my oven is... say, your oven works, and you don't use it."
"Well, I put things on it."
"You probably wouldn't even notice if I took your range and oven and put them in my house."
"Actually I might not at that."
"You'd just see the space and think, huh, wasn't there something there before?"
"You're probably... no wait, I used my stove just last week, when I made tea!"
"You don't microwave your water?"
"Certainly NOT. That's crazy. I have a whistling tea kettle."
"You use a tea kettle."
"It whistles. And a tea pot. It's part of the tea ritual."
"I still think you wouldn't notice. You'd walk by, feel like something was missing, then you'd shrug it off."
"If I don't get sick or cold, you might be right. That's when I need to cook water."
"Now if I took your microwave or your toaster oven, you'd be in trouble."
"I'd starve."

(note: this isn't entirely true. i use my oven for things sometimes. pizza, for example. and sometimes i cook pasta on my range too... so there.)

EXCELLENT, tea must NEVER be microwaved!

You don't bake cookies from time to time?

Good point. I do, but I haven't done so in quite some time.

Yum, cookies.

I don't know if the stove in my apartment even works. It's a gas unit, and I've never turned the gas on to it.

I probably shouldn't. I suspect the thing is an official antique. I put a glass chopping board on it, and it is the home of my rice cooker.

(It's similar to the stove here: http://antiquegasstoves.com/pages/aptokm.html But I think the one in my apartment is even older. And, it's a "Dixie" brand. I wonder how much I could sell it for?)

That was me, if anyone cares.

I care! I was wondering.

I think your stove is a lot like F's, actually.
