Zach is playing jr. high sports and they've been practicing football. Yesterday he brought home his mouth guard with instructions for me to "boil it so I can form it to my mouth."
So I did,,,for several minutes cause I forgot about it.
It started out looking something like the ones in the top photo. The end result was the strange object below.
What he meant to say was "put it in boiling water" for a minute. He's pretty mad at me for following his instructions. We both now know that mouth guards are not boilable.
And he forgot to take money this morning to replace it. I reckon I'm in hot water again.
