For several weeks, the little dude's been sitting on my counter, waiting to be used.
Finally, a few days ago, because I was sick, I got around to making some tea. And you know what I found?
This tea pot sucks.
I mean... it's awful. Truly.
Worst. Design. Ever.
You have to turn it practically upside to get any tea out, which makes liquid seep out from under the lid, likely burning your hands. And the holes on the inside of the pot are so small, you can only pour a slow-moving, measly dribble.
This is seriously annoying.
So, since functionality is nil, I'm going back to my old pot. But what to do with this elephant? I don't want to give him to Goodwill where he may be bought by some unsuspecting individual who will soon find him/herself with scalded hands. And besides, the thing's cute. It doesn't work in the way it's intended, but it's still cute.
So, I thought: planter.
