Metal Hot Water Bottle

Metal Hot Water Bottle

9.5" x 13" x 2.5"
Galvanized Steel, Brass & Rubber
JAPAN

Is it a giant metallic cockroach
or some far-out spaceship?
(Yes, little men exist.)
No, it's a metal Japanese hot water bottle.
Warm to the touch,
even extremely hot if uncovered -
so take care!
Certain to impress your picnic date.
Wait, that's not water;
it's a delicious hot toddy for two!
The rest of this hike
is going to be magical.
The essence is within.
