butter fingers

Sure wish I were talking about a delicious candy creation. Instead I,m posting about myself.
Last night I was draining the pasta and somehow managed to splash boiling water down my leg. Of course I was wearing light weight cotton pants that did nothing to protect my skin.

We went off to the emegency room where I was diagnosed with a second degree burn. Its about the size of my hand...which aren't small. This morning I found another burned area on the back of my leg. I guess the pain was so bad I didn't notice I was burned elsewhere.

Hopefully it will heal up quickly.
