Close your eyes...

So, if you're trying to make chicken piccata, which involves lightly breading chicken and then cooking it quickly in a pan of olive oil and butter, let me give you a little advice: don't let go of the piece of chicken too quickly and let it drop into the grease, creating a title wave of oil and butter onto your arm. Because that hurts....

I hurt myself in the weirdest ways. This nasty burn covers most of the area between my elbow and wrist. It's so grose looking. I asked Claire if Daddy would still think I was beautiful, and she said: "well, if you wear long sleeves over that thing." Sweet. At least I know I'm loved unconditionally around here.

Susan! I am crying about that! That is the last thing you needed with company, the party and just getting back from the trip. I am so sorry about it. That is terrible. Is it still hurting at all? Please use polysporon!

Oh my....burns are no fun. Maybe some vitamin E oil or aloe would help. Oh, you pour thing.
