I learned a GREAT lesson last night, and I thought I would share with you. So, for those of you in the D/FW area – you know how cold it was yesterday. BRRRRR! I decided that a fire would be great. So, I found the gas key and turned on the gas logs – grabbed the lighter so I could light the fire – and it wouldn’t spark. So, I kept trying and trying and trying to get the lighter to work. Finally got it to work and I put it to the fireplace to light the logs and S W I S H – a HUGE fireball hit my face. Oh, did I mention I forgot to open the floo? (sp?)
Thankfully, I’ve got fast reflexes – I darted out the way as fast as I could. I’m so thankful that my hair was in a bun. I ran to the bathroom to see how bad my face looked – I noticed that most of my eyebrows where scorched as well as my hair. Thank goodness it was in a bun – oh wait – I said that already. I lost some of my bangs, my eyebrows – and I discovered this morning that I lost some of my eye lashes! Cold compresses work wonders! My face didn’t look too bad this morning, but I still see some redness. My hands are nice and red. At first, I thought I had 1st degree burns, but it’s really not that bad. Probably more like a sunburn – very minor.
So, tonight on my way home from work, I bought some fake eyelashes and an eye brower shaper at Macy*s. Believe it or not, I won a full jar of Clinique’s Zero Gravity face cream. Co-inky-dink?
So, Lession #1 in cold weather – let your husband light the fire.
