the story of an invisible girl

Owie!
I was making myself a nice poptart for a snack just now (cleverly stolen from the annoying hotel I was staying at this week). I pulled it out of my toaster oven by hand. This is how I always do it, tapping it off the rack and onto a plate.

This time it went a little wrong. A piece of the icing, which had practically liquidated, got stuck to the tip of my finger. I shook my hand, and it didn't come off. It just continued to get get hotter. Ack!

Finally I stuck the finger in my mouth and took the burning stuff off with my teeth. Telling myself it was nothing, I took my poptart to the couch with me.

When it didn't stop hurting, I took a glance. To my surprise, I saw three little white blisters had formed on my fingertip! I decided that deserved some attention, so I pulled out an ice pack for it.

Wow, maimed by my food. Ouchie! I'm typing this with one hand and one finger right now. It feels great, as long as I keep it numb. Thank goodness for ice, eh? I'm fascinated by the blisters; second degree burns are unusual in my line of work. Very weird...hopefully it'll heal quickly.

Hey, if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the toatster!

Yeah...but raw poptarts just aren't nearly as tasty.

Yes, so I've discovered! Unfortunately it's also rather sticky. My owie is much better now tho, thanks.

Heh, who says modern humans are getting soft? See, our food can still fight back ;)

Yes indeed! The kitchen can be a dangerous place....

If I ever see a pop-tart with an opposable thumb, I'm going for my shotgun RIGHT AWAY.

Sounds like a 2nd degree burn. Hot icing can do that, glad it was just over a small areas and not a big patch of your hand.
