Here is a wacky story about a Friday night and how I spent it boiling water. Oh, you thought a watched pot didn't boil? You are wrong, my friends. Not only does a watched pot boil when you're doing it right, but a watched pot boils even faster when you're standing over it taking pictures. Take THAT, Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable! Huh, I guess it's not quite as catchy.
