That’s what I’m beginning to think I am. This morning I decided that since my cholesterol had dropped so low, I deserved bacon and eggs for breakfast. I fried the bacon and was attempting to pour most of the bacon grease into a cup when it sloshed out over my hand. It really burned my hand down to the wrist and over to the palm side. Dang, my aloe plant is at Jeannie’s house, and she and her family are enjoying a 4 day vacation at Lake Tahoe, so I immediately held my hand under cold running water. It helped enough that I could stop to cook the eggs and eat my mid-morning breakfast.
I’ve since been resting with the hand wrapped in a wet towel with ice cubes layered in there, and it still burns like hell. I should probably have immediately driven out to buy another aloe plant, but I didn’t feel like getting into the car.
Some of you may remember an incident when I dropped bacon grease all over the kitchen of my 5th wheel, and I sometimes think I shouldn’t ever buy bacon again. But I love it now and then.
There goes all the odds & ends jobs I was going to do today.
