The kitchen window had been left open all night in a blizzard and now there was snow all over the sink and counter and windowsill. I was trying to make breakfast. I noticed that I’d broken an egg onto a saucer which I’d placed on a lit burner. That’s not going to work, I thought. Suddenly the stove was enormous, ten feet tall, and I wondered what I was supposed to do to use it.
