This has been a painful weekend for me. The first thing I do most mornings is make coffee and enjoy a cup while checking email. I took a sip way too quick and burned the side of my tongue. How dumb!
Then later that afternoon, I forgot my sunscreen, doh!, and bug spray so now I have a bit of sunburn on my face and a few bug bites on my ankle. Mosquitoes love me something fierce. I recently read that using rubbing alcohol on bug bites take away the itch and that has been working. But tonight, it’s bad and I am now using some Benadryl cream.
Then Sunday evening I made pasta with peas for dinner. All was going well, except I was out of fresh garlic. rabbit trail here- It turns out the garlic odor that was so strong in here for about 2 weeks was coming from a head of garlic that went bad. I discovered that yesterday when I was making hummus for a party. Anyway, the pasta was cooking and it was time for the “taste test”. I used orrechiette, which means “little ears or hats”, I have heard of both. They tend to hold in the sauce or the boiling hot water in my case. I now have a burned lip and the front part of my tongue because of the boiling water that was in the pasta. Ouch!!!
Just send me a big band-aid, ice pack, some Benadryl and a thermometer to check the temps of all liquids I am about to consume. If I didn’t want to finish painting tomorrow, I’d just stay in bed all day and stay safe.
