Why did it have to be *today*????

Five years ago, when I started my first teaching job in August, I bought an electric tea kettle to keep in my classroom. Every morning, and sometimes in the afternoon, I make tea for myself. I've been doing this every day I've taught.

Today, with seven school days left in the last school year I will teach in Oakland, seven school days when I REALLY need the tea more than ever, my electric tea kettle died.
