Big bang teapot

Damn! What is that horrible noise!

Throws computer off lap, runs to check it out…

Oh. It’s only my new teapot. I had put the water on to boil for afternoon tea and then promptly forgot about it. Unfortunately, I have boiled more than one teakettle dry when working on a new book, which is why I bought the new teakettle — complete with loud and obnoxious whistle.

Still, I didn’t know it was going to sound like that minuscule dot of matter that was the Universe just before it went Bang.
