John Marsden Writing Topic #27
If, because of the energy crisis, you’re only allowed to keep one electrical appliance, what would it be? Why?**
A kettle. I would keep a kettle because I can use boiling water for multiple purposes: making tea/coffee and other hot drinks, as well as basic food to keep myself alive and fed. I can also use the boiling water to wash dishes, shower (once it cools a bit) and to help treat wounds.
