Today I spent two
hours adjusting pH
dissolve all ready

pH=2 syllables because that's how it would sound out loud. True story. 2 hours-ish. 1.75 would have messed up my syllable count. EDTA won't dissolve until the solution hits about pH=8. I did not know that when I dumped in 180 grams of the stuff. After letting it stir for a few hours, I looked it up. Let that be a lesson to you. But I won.
And clearly I can't sleep and am all ready betrayed by the time stamp on this post.

Oh, I think EDTA was involved in quantitative analysis lab somehow... I remember something that took forever to dissolve.
