  • I had the urge at midnight for pancakes. Since there is no one here to wake up, I decided I really needed to treat myself with pancakes. All I had to do was add water to the pancake mix and put it in a skillet of hot oil.

    I poured out enough batter for three pancakes. They stuck to the skillet and rolled up in a ball when I tried to scrape them out with a spatula. I remembered reading that the oil is ready for the batter to be poured in the skillet when a drop of water dances in the oil. I poured in a drop of water. It exploded and sprayed grease all over the once spotless stove.
