Tea Kettle

Just for fun I thought of a dozen uses for a tea kettle:

1. Heat water for tea.

2. Bash a burglar.

3. Plant petunias in it.

4. Knit a tea cozy for it.

5. Melt it down for some sort of newfangled ammo.

6. Give it away as a gift.

7. Paint rosemåling all over it (traditional Norwegian folk art of flowers, birds, butterflies, ribbons, and such)

8. Use it to water houseplants.

9. Bury it in the backyard with treasure in it.

10. Return it to store and get my money back.

11. Fill it with concrete, then practice shot putting it for the over-the-hill Senior Olympics.

12. Use it as a mirror to scry my future.

13. (A baker's dozen donuts adds an extra donut to coax the customer's good will.)

Heat the kettle until it whistles, then amuse myself trying to play a tune.

Tea kettle just like the first one I had in the 70s (non-commercial use)

(Oh, it was an elegant shape but it was very hard to pour hot water out of it without burning your hand.)
