One day during cooking class, the teacher, Mrs. Jones, was extolling her
secrets for preparing perfect sauces.  When she ordered us to the stoves
to prepare our assignments, she said, "Don't forget to use wooden spoons."

As I stirred my sauce, I contemplated the physics behind the mystery of
the wooden spoon and decided it must have something to do with heat
conduction.  I approached Mrs. Jones to test my theory.  I asked "Why
wooden spoons?"

"Because," she replied, "if I have to sit here listening to all your metal
spoons banging against metal pots, I'd go nuts."
