Ben has a bit of a pet peeve in having a smelly kitchen sponge. I can’t say I enjoy a smelly sponge. But I do know that the life and freshness of a sponge can be prolonged by soaking it in a bleach solution, and also by zapping it in the microwave for about fifteen seconds. So Ben zapped the sponge, a little too long, I guess, and came to tell me that he burnt it. And I got the giggles, because I think “I burnt the sponge,” is one of the more awesome sentences I’ve heard lately.
