i love potatos, in pretty much every form. true, pomme frittes occupy a special place in my heart- probably quite literally- but spuds in many incarnations get my pulse racing.
like baked potatos a few solid hours of work. with salsa and butter. mmm.
in fact, i love them so much that i can't wait to take them out of the microwave.
and thus i burn myself. yes, that there on the edge of my thumb is a blister. i burned my index finger too but the blister isn't nearly as impressive. and how did the blister get to be so bad?
because i only ran it under cold water for about 10 seconds.
BECAUSE I HAD TO EAT MY BAKED POTATO.
to be fair, i did hold sam's ice water while eating. but not the recommended 2 minute cold water bath it really needed.
and now i look like this.
a really really unhappy monkey. and the blister that's the cause of all the distress.
in case you were wondering, the potato- SO TASTY.
