OW! How the F*CK did I do that? OW!
So there I am, in the kitchen, pouring the water off my macaroni into the colander in the sink, a task I’ve only done about 1000 times with this exact pan, colander, and sink without difficulty.  But this time, some demon of entropy causes a gout of boiling water to leap out of the sink and attack me.

Right smack in the place a man least wants to be attacked.

Lest anyone seriously panic, this is not a call-the-ambulance scale of injury.  (It wasn’t the whole pan of boiling water -- just a splash.)  But I am going to be uncomfortable for a few days.

Current Mood: scalded

Oh man!

I'm sorry, I hurt for you.

*A few years ago, while making candy, I splashed molten sugar on my chest...seriously 2nd degree+ burns on an area that never sees the sun - so I honestly do feel for you.

Hope that you are more comfortable soon.

I cant even bring myself to make an incredibly bad comment here. Mind you, I typed most of them out just to get them out of my system, but I didnt press the post button.

The biophysicist in me is imagining that the crucial difference between this time and the 1000 previous safe ones is the postioning or condition of the drain/stopper/whatever hidden beneath the colander.

And the medical researcher in me is hoping that the bag of frozen water-based cooling was close at hand and reduced some of the pain.

Ibuprofen is my friend. I hope you have a similar friendship established. I also hope that Wellness returns soon!

I had something witty to say, then I made the mistake of reading the comments first....Now I can not stop laughing...

Sorry to hear about the family jewels though, that must have stung a little.
