THE COOKING CLASS
One day during cooking class, our teacher, Mrs.
was extolling her secrets for preparing perfect sauces. When she ordered us to the stoves
to prepare our assignments, she said, "Please class, don't forget to use wooden spoons."
As I stirred my sauce, I contemplated the physics behind the mystery of the wooden spoon
and decided it must have something to do with heat conduction. I approached Mrs.
to test my theory.
"Why wooden spoons?" I asked.
"Because," she replied, "if I have to sit here listening to all your metal
spoons banging against metal pots, I'll go mad!"
