I hate to say it but I think that icky throat thing that I had last week may be coming back. I noticed that my throat started feeling a bit sore again this afternoon. How can that be after taking all those mega-doses of antibiotics? I don't want to have to go back to the doctor. Maybe a popsicle will help soothe the pain. What do you think?
Did I tell you about my cooking mishap over the weekend? I saw a recipe for Cobb Salad in the latest issue of Redbook Magazine while I was waiting to have my hair cut. The picture looked so tasty that I decided to make it for supper Saturday night. The recipe called for crumbled bacon and instead of frying it I decided to be more "health conscious" (well...as healthy as bacon can be) and broil the bacon instead. When I took it out of the broiler, the pan slipped pouring hot bacon grease all over my hand and wrist. Yeowee!!! After letting out a blood-curdling scream, I quickly got my hand under the cold water faucet. The pain was tolerable as long as it was under cold water, so we decided to eat our salads outside on the deck while my hand soaked in a bucket of ice water. (I wish I had a picture of that to share with you!) Fortunately the pain subsided by the time I went to bed, but by the next day the huge, ugly blisters and scorched skin appeared and believe me - it wasn't a pretty sight. Now that a few days have passed, the burns seem to be healing pretty well with the help of lots of aloe and Neosporin. I am sure it will leave a scar, but I am so grateful that I didn't have to go to the emergency room. Oh, and if you were wondering. . .the cobb salad tasted just as good as the recipe looked!
