Want a laugh?

I managed to squirt lemon juice in my eye today while eating a salad. I had to flush my eye out 4 times for my vision to return to normal. It was still quite comical. Now that my eye is no longer burning I certainly see humour in it. If you would like a laugh, please laugh at my expense

CDNgirl37, that's hysterical!! I can't tell you how many times I've done that peeling a grapefruit!! I have a good one for you.. I was out to dinner with a good friend for my birthday dinner. My fave is lobster and when the waitress came my friend had prearranged them to have a 2 pounder brought out when I ordered the regular one. Well, I'm eating and in total joy and I leave the claws for last. Finally, end of the lobster, pick up the big claw and go to crack it, my hands were greasy from butter and the claw flew right out of my hand and across the restaurant!! I was so bummed. The waitress actually went into the kitchen and brought me the big claw from a 3 pounder... LOL!!!

A cautionary tale about the perils of eating salad. I'm convinced. Salad is evil! ( :

I used to make hot sauce with habaneros. Before I knew better, I didn't wear gloves and had hot pepper juice all over my hands.

Once I took a shower immediately after. Everything was fine until I scrubbed my junk. 😵😵😵 Holy shit did it burn!! It took well over a day and 5 showers to stop burning!!!

Just thought I'd share and add to the Schadenfreude. :)

PS- I always keep tears free baby shampoo handy for when I accidentally get pepper juice in my eyes. It's oil so the baby shampoo works better than water for clearing out the burn. Should work for lemon juice too :)

Dlwc - agreed! Salad is the root of all evil. Haha.

Loki, that would hurt! One time I put scented lotion on my legs. The guy I was dating rubbed his genitals on my leg and it turned out he was extremely allergic to it! He had to go to the doctor and everything!

Every time Rick, my other half, takes a bite out of an apple I get an apple juice shower. LOL

Lol. I've done that before, and at the moment it's not funny. Have you ever went to drink from a straw and ended up with it up your nose? I did twice because I looked up just before putting the straw in my mouth. 😲
