Mini Mondays: Dear Idiot..

Boiling water

Dear idiot,

I get that you need to boil water at random times of day or night for the baby's milk, and that's why you're standing here, barefoot, half asleep, willing water to boil quickly at 3:41am so you can maybe go back to bed and not look like hell tomorrow morning. I know you're in a hurry, I get that, but listen and listen carefully: When attempting to pour boiling water directly from the saucepan into a small thermos, do NOT do so while holding the thermos in your bloody hand. Unless you have the steadiest hands this side of neurosurgery, trust me when I say you WILL burn yourself.


The idiot with the burnt hand



Although this may not be exactly what Northwest Frame of Mind had in mind for her 1 Day 1 World Project, here's my bit for the 3:00am – 4:00am hour 🙂

  1. Lessons learned . . . Hopefully. My days of midnight feelings are long since past, my excuses now are not as noble. I removed a casserole from the oven without a mitt just the other day. It still hurts. This idiot has suffered many burnt hands :o)


    1. Hahaha! Burnt hands due to cooking are embarrassingly frequent for me as well but this was just stupid on my part >.< What was I thinking trying to pour boiling water into a relatively small target while half asleep?
