Few of you humans know this, but we teapots are a ticklish lot! This truism came to mind one day when I, your fave little teapot, and my gang of teapots here in the kitchen saw a diagram of our basic anatomical structure by the kind folks at A.C. Silver. It’s a handy guide, also, for how to handle your teapot with the least amount of tickling.
The sparkle of silver at tea time is easy to achieve, as this little teapot showed you humans in this article. But no matter what your teapot is made of or how it is shaped (the variety seems endless), the body parts are all there, as is the ticklishness. And which parts are most ticklish can vary from teapot to teapot, with some parts being more ticklish than others – just like many of you humans are most ticklish on the soles of your feet or at your belly buttons (whatever that is). So be kind humans and handle us with care, especially during cleaning – this will also avoid our other archenemies: chipping, breaking, cracking, etc.
Are these good or bad for us teapots, especially for avoiding tickling?

Taking proper care of us teapots helps us take proper care of you humans. Steeping you tasty tea is good for us both. Tickling is generally bad – at least at tea time. TOOOT!
