My teapot whistled for the first time today when I was boiling water for cup noodles. It always made a sputtering noise before this, so I thought it was just a kind that didn’t whistle. I felt a kind of pride, like the teapot had learned how to do something. It was like watching a baby bird learn to fly or a lion cub make its first kill.

While I was waiting I was watching the first episode of the second season of Parks and Rec. I didn’t recognize the song Leslie was rapping until the very end. It was “Parents Just Don’t Understand.” I don’t know that song very well.
