Last night I cooked a squash in the oven. This morning, I discovered this lighter than air blob of stuff in a pan on one of the lower racks; a porous charcoal cloud that I bet doesn’t weigh a whole ounce.

Or maybe its that thing that dissolved when you woke up from a nightmare. I guess I ought to throw it away. So I took this picture.
