Then in the evening I made some rice, wild rice with vegetables from a package. You know those little bubbling holes in the pot when the rice is just almost done? That's just steam from the water at the bottom boiling and going to the surface. It's not rice crabs, I promise. Unless you're making paella or something.
In my mind I am comparing the two. Elegant mysterious steam cavities in a smooth fluffy surface. You know those links that bubble up through the holes in your mind, where you realize that two very different things occupy the same memory? What are those?
