I recently brought myself some 'Pop Tarts,' mainly because Thought's Appear keeps mentioning them in her blog which has awakened some long suppressed addiction that goes back to my childhood. So as I scooted around my supermarket I dragged D down "just one more aisle" to get my precious beloved pop-tarts.
I've been enjoying them...up until last night when I had one of those crazy caveman moments.
I put my pop tart into my toaster and grabbed a plate ready for it to pop. I did my little yummy pop-tart dance until it was all gooey, crispy and ready to eat, I grabbed it and put it on my plate.
-insert caveman moment-
Ouchie, my hand hurts why hand feel burny? *drop poptart* why hand still feel burny? Hot thing on plate now...ouchie very hot and burny why this pain happening? *examine hand* Owowowow very, very burny!
-end caveman moment-
The filling had smushed out of the pop tart and attached itself to my finger - like oil - and continued to burn my skin.
I'd have included a picture of my owie but my camera seems to be created only for a right handed user, poor left-handed D, and I can't photograph my finger and hold the camera at the same time.
It really hurts, I had it in a custom made finger bath for most of the night and kept showing it to D and whimpering "Holly's finger hurty" I got no sympathy for my caveman stupidity.
And today my injury is hampering my pen-holdage. I might have to make it a crutch later out of some matchsticks.
You can be sure I'll be using tongs, an oven glove or both, to remove any future pop tarts from the toaster.
