Ouch.. my arm
The clumsiness in me strikes again 😦
I started my preparations for dinner and had switched on the oven.. I’m making southern fried chicken with some sweet potato fries and decided I wanted to try them in the oven as opposed to frying them.
Upon taking out the tray I’d forgotten in the oven, I caught my arm on it and burnt myself.
It felt like it happened in slow motion. I didn’t immediately run it under cold water because I thought that it was okay..then some moments after it started burning quite intensely 😦
I currently have my trusty aloe vera gel smothered over the area and am quite proud that this is my first burn!
As you probably remember, I used to burn and injure myself quite a bit because I always felt I needed to do things faster than the speed of light. Thankfully I have slowed down and my injury count has reduced drastically.
I do tend to be more careful these days with what I am doing and make a habit of taking my time more.
The food will wait for me if I wanted to take my time.. I just need to begin to learn to take my time.
Back to cooking!
