shattered before its time

My father was rustling around in the cupboard when he found this. He used to travel often on business trips, around the Pacific Rim. One of his hobbies was bringing home utterly useless items; see above. He's the only business traveler I know who returns with more luggage than at departure. So we have a glass teapot that hasn't been used in years. A suggestion is made that it be washed, to use for our next brew.

As these things go . . . before it ever came into the slightest contact with any tea, before any hint of hot water being poured, it broke. My mother has butterfingers and the top squirted out of her hands, half of it shearing off. Oops. The greatest glass pot of tea never brewed.
