two minute teapot

The exercise I enjoy is the two minute teapot, including assembly. Of
course the ones I make this way are only teapots in the loosest sense; but
it is a great way to get a shift in your sense of how long things should
take. After a few of these, you start thinking ten seconds is a long time.
I first pull the handle while I still have one dry hand, then make the body,
the lid and the spout off a hump... Assemble, done! I understand there are
those in our world who can make these teapots you might even want to use.
