Ouch!

So, I'm thinking it's about time for lunch. I turn on the oven to make some pizza, and when it comes time to get the pizza out, my internal monologue goes something like this:

Hmm, what's that weird burning sensation along the inside of my arm? Could I be burning myself? No, I'm wearing oven mitts. What is going on? That's a weird sensation. Wow, it's getting more painful. Maybe I should take my hands out of the oven. Let me just get that pizza . . . . Nope, wait, still hurts. What the hell is going on?

Turns out that the metal core of my wrist braces heats up rather fast when exposed to 450 degree heat. I ripped those suckers off faster than you can say "velcro," though I managed not to dump pizza all over the floor in the process. Fortunately I'm not hurt, just a little sore and rather embarrassed.

As an old friend of mine used to say, usually after dropping something on his foot or otherwise being clumsy, "Hello physics! Nice to meet you!"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I'm totally stealing that. :)

I hadn't thought of that line in ages. Now I'm probably going to start saying it too. I think of it less as stealing and more as an homage. It sounds more noble that way.

Sounds a lot like my misadventures in microwaving my own hand right before Pesach.

How in the world did you manage that? Most microwaves won't turn on unless the door is shut . . . .

Ow! Glad to hear it's not serious!

And it's a good thing you don't wear lots and lots of jewelry.... Can you imagine Mr T? ;)
