Please Tell Me This Has Happened to Someone Else…

You find yourself ironing in your bra and underwear.

You underestimate just how much your expanding tummy now protrudes (and NOT because there’s a bun in the oven either).

Consequently, your middle section unknowingly gets a WEE BIT too close to the ironing board . . . and suddenly you have a burn mark from the iron right across your gut.

Now covered by a Go, Diego Go Band-aid.

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

  1. No. I’ve been none to have to sport Barbie and Dora bandais but not for aa burn. Good luck with that. 😉

  2. I keep my band-aids in my kitchen pantry if that tells you anything. I’m most likely to injure myself in the kitchen (many sharp objects: knives, metal can lids, etc.).

    In college, I had a small ironing board with short legs that required you to sit on the floor while ironing. One day I straddled the board and burned my inner thigh as I brought the iron back a BIT too far. I later had my iron sitting on the floor to cool and backed against it while trying to see my pants in a short mirror (back when I wanted to see myself in pants–now I just prefer to think I don’t have a lower half) anyway, it was all cartoonish while I stood there and had that “something’s burning” thought running through my head only to realize that the iron had completely seared through my first couple layers of skin on my calf. It blistered and I had to wear mini-skirts (remember those?) all that week because cloth rubbing against it was PAINFUL!

    So, yeah. I’ve been there, baby. Welcome to the club.

  3. I never burned my stomach but I have burned my arms. I think it has something to do with being left-handed. At least that is the excuse I am using.

    I decided to give up ironing. I just use a water bottle and the dryer instead.

  4. Oh sure … that used to happen to me all the freakin’ time. Don’t worry, you’ll get used to it …

    that, or you’ll just stop ironing, like I did.

  5. Never the stomach, but the leg. we didn’t have an ironing board for a long time, so I would spread out a towel and iron straight on the floor (lovely I know). I hit my leg a couple times. I just don’t have good depth perseption. That’s my story and I am sticking to it!

  6. Princess "tattoo" bandaids in this house. And what, pray tell, is an iron> And why do you use one on your undies??? I'm so confused!

  7. Ha, ha, ha! I was ironing IN my undies, not ironing my undies, Jody! You know me, I’m such the NEAT FREAK! 🙂

  8. I’ve never done that exactly, but I did singe my bangs once when I got too close to the gas heater in my parent’s bathroom. The smell of burning hair is one of the worse, in my opinion.

    Hope it feels better soon!
