The Chicken Pie That Bit Me!

Little Jack Horner
Sat in a corner,
Eating a mincemeat pie.
He stuck in his thumb
And pulled out a plum,
And said, "What a good boy am I!"

The day started off on a rough note. I needed to reheat my coffee in the microwave and in so doing, I bumped my cup and spilled the whole cup inside the mic! Cleaned up that mess...
Made another cup of coffee - spilled the cup all over the counter top. I would've quit at that point, but darn, did I need that coffee! Coffee quest completed.

For dinner, I threw a Marie Calendar's chicken pie in the microwave. (I fixed hubman burritos but my stomach wasn't up to that). When the buzzer went off, I opened the door and reached for the box (you leave the pie in the box), it slipped, I grabbed the box, only to have the chicken pie slide out of the box! I grabbed it without thinking, and my pinkie finger went smack-dab into the boiling hot pie! OUCH!!! I stuck it under cold water immediately and then kept ice on it. I still have huge blisters on my finger.

I bet when Little Jack Horner stuck his thumb in the pie and pulled out a plum, it hadn't been in a bloomin' microwave!

I'm so much fun...

I burned my hand on a microwave meal once. Now I use oven mitts.
