    The Secret Ingredient to Reading Enjoyment “A watched pot never boils.” Whatever that means. That is just one of the many phrases my mom reiterated during my childhood. Of course, I never gave it much thought. It sounded silly to me. As a kid, I heard so many words strung together and was completely unaware and unappreciative of the meaning; I was always a “get straight to the point” kind of kid.
