If you have spent any time around me when I'm trying to do something in the kitchen there is one word - OUCH! - that you are pretty used to hearing. Let's face it folks, I'm a bit of a clutz in the kitchen.

So it shouldn't be any surprise that I've done it yet again. Oh yeah, this one's gonna leave a mark.

Let me explain. Yesterday (not a good day, btw) I headed to Mama Vi's after work. We're gonna have a nice family weekend, and I was actually looking forward to it.

So I arrive in pretty good time and we're sitting in her kitchen having coffee and catching up. I reach over to pour us both another cup of coffee....talking all the while (there's a surprise!) All of a sudden I'm feeling a searing pain in my ankle.

In a delayed reaction I realize I am actually POURING hot coffee on to my ankle.

OUCH! (please keep in mind I'm not supposed to curse at Mama Vi's.) OUCHOUCHOUCHOUCHOUC!!!!!!

Mama took immediate action as all I was capable of doing was saying ouch and laughing at how clutzy I am sometimes. Well, that and thinkin' "I'm really gonna have to blog this one!".

But yeah, this one's gonna leave a mark!!!

Okay, I seriously thought stuff like this only happens in movies.

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and say you stopped pouring coffee after you felt the searing pain....

You did right???

I have a video of Martha Stewart Jr cooking in my kitchen. It was when she was showing me how to make her famous BBQ ribs. About 10 yrs ago. She was about 98 pounds back then. I was on her shit list. I have received a million compliments regarding the BBQ rib recipe. I know how talented she is and how damn goofy she is. This is just an average day for her.

Oh. My. God. You're okay though, right? No lasting scars? In that case.....

Wow, what an incredible bastard I am! I wouldn't've laughed if I'd known it *did* leave a lasting scar...

*humbly awaiting penance*
