Yesterday, I was making some home made salsa. I ran out of the gloves I usually use to cut the jalapenos with so I just cut them without. Jalapeno juice burns, if you didn’t know that. I cut the Jalapenos and put them in the blender and finished chopping up the other ingredients, then rubbed my chin. After a few minutes my chin began to burn. Then a few minutes later my nose and well every spot on my face that I had itched, even though I had washed my hands well, they still had Jalapeno juice on them. Anyway, this reminded me of something that I have not forgotten yet and I am sure that a couple of my cousins won’t forget either.
In the summer of 1997, I went to live with my cousin Tina. While I was there my cousin, Tina’s brother, Toby came to visit for a little while. We were making nachos or something in the kitchen and had opened a huge can of Jalapenos. Toby was handling the Jalapenos and then suddenly had to go to the restroom. Pretty soon, Tina and I heard some screaming coming from the bathroom and he came out and said, “I FORGOT to wash my hands!” I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard in my life and Tina and I still crack up when we think about it. Not sure if Toby does though.
I was just printing out Birthday invitations for David and Karalyn’s birthdays in June. We are going to have hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch at the party. I was debating on whether we should grill them or not because a memory of a previous birthday party popped into my head.
In 2004, shortly after we moved into our house, we had a double birthday party for my grandma and I. We decided to BBQ Hamburgers and Hot dogs on the grill. I left David in charge of the grilling. He pulled his grill up on the front porch and was grilling away, when some grease dripped into the grill and….poof….we had flames rolling on the ceiling of our front porch.( LOL…one Hot Party) David closed the grill quickly and the fire was gone…and thank goodness the only ones out on the porch were my mom, my Aunt Glenda, David and I….so no one else knew about David almost burning the house down. That was the last time that David grilled on the front porch….and I’ve been doing the BBQ-ing in the kitchen ever since.
I think I’ll be cooking the Hamburgers and hot dogs this time too.
