:oops: Not related to cooking but something stupid. I thought I turned off the curling iron and I grabbed the hot end to put it away. Forgive me Lord for the words that came out of my mouth.

Last summer I made a blueberry-nectarine buckle. I was wearing shorts, and as I pulled the dish out of the oven, I slipped/the dish slipped, and I ended up dropping the whole darn thing down the front of me. Imagine 350F brown sugar all over the fronts of your bare legs! There was buckle all over the floor, too. I had had a horrible day already and was home alone so once I got the burning sugar off of me I sat down on the floor and ate buckle and cried! :oops:

I often use my cast iron pans for roasting things in, and I'm fine at remembering to wear oven gloves on BOTH hands to get them out of the oven, then I transfer them carefully onto trivets on my counter.....but TWICE in the past month I've managed to burn my tummy on the handles when leaning over them to dish out the food LOL!

OOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCHHHHHHHHHHHH GB, I feel for you, as I have done the same thing. From experience, GB, bet you will not be doing that again too soon. I never have. Of course I blamed the pot by hurling it across the room and into a wall. Then I was expletive deleting all the while I was cleaning up the mess with one hand in a bowl of ice water. YUK

Our group would give the burn unit at the hospital a run for their money. Aloe anyone?

I now have an aloe plant, then I did not.

Ouch...........I hope you heal quickly. I can't tell you the number of times I tell someone not to touch something because I just got it out of the oven and its hot and stupid me is the one who winds up touching it :oops:

I know that hurts GB - cold water all night long - you will feel so much better in the morning - just keep changing it - a few ice cubes but not many.

I put an oven thermometer in to check the calibration - just picked it up to take it out of the oven

Did you know that modern aromatherapy was re-discovered because a French chemist & perfumier, Rene Gattefosse, burnt his hand badly one day and plunged it into the nearest cold liquid he could find - a vat of Lavender Oil. Rene was amazed that the pain went away from the burn very quickly and that it healed within a few days with no scarring and no infection. Rene was inspired to go on to do much scientific research on the medicinal properties of essential oils..... anyway, I always keep a bottle of lavender oil in my first aid kit, and it's great for burns - it really works :)

Paint, that's really interesting! I'll have to look for lavender oil and buy stock in it!

Elf, I've done the same thing with an oven thermometer--at least twice! :oops:
