Ash Wednesday

February 17, 2010

My mother asked me to explain the contents of “Claire Says” on the sidebar:

Corn starch may look like baking soda but has the opposite effect on kitchen fires.

By “kitchen fire”, I really meant “smoking burner” (hi homeowners!) and by opposite effect I meant that instead of smothering said smoking burner, corn starch will ignite it. Just so you know. But this is all speculation of course.

Happy Ash Wednesday, by the way. I will be giving up cooking for Lent. (J.D, you should take special note of this)

    I don’t think the “unto dust you shall return” had anything to do with kitchen fires, but who am I to judge your interpretation?
