Being a wife and mother, I've done my share of cooking and thus have had my share of burns. I actually seem to have a knack for it. It's like a special skill. I wonder if I could use that on a job application.
Yesterday, I was draining pasta and poured boiling water on the knuckle of my right index finger. Ouch. Okay...to be honest I've done this before, but never this bad. It's all red and yelling and throwing a temper tantrum this morning. Ah well. I'll be more careful next time. I'll probably still burn myself, but maybe I'll be quicker in the dousing it with cold water and applying an ice cube.
I think I'm special.
