The Pop Tart Saga Continues

When my husband came home from work, I showed him my finger and told him that I had burned it. When he asked how, I cleverly sidestepped the issue of my eating Pop Tarts for lunch by muttering, "In the kitchen," before distracting him with my demands to look closely at the world's worst injury and to agree with me that it was the most painful burn any woman has ever experienced and wasn't I a brave warrior.

Later that night, my husband walked past me with a plate of Pop Tarts and a glass of milk. He said, "Did you by chance burn your thumb on a Pop Tart? Because I just burned the snot out of my thumb trying to get one out of the toaster."

If you look closely, you can see that he actually developed TWO blisters.
However, my burn is much bigger, so I win.



Dinner last night: mushroom & Colby cheese stuffed meatloaf, mashed potatoes & gravy, steamed asparagus

I was thinking as I read that you hadn't told him, "Doesn't he read your blog?" My boyfriend doesn't read mine either...for some reason any time I set it up to e-mail remind him it doesn't go through to his account. It's good in a way...we can say whatever we want. :-)

They should seriously come with a warning label! I just bought 3 boxes of pop-tarts today and now I'm a bit scared to open them. Luckily, my daughter doesn't really like them toasted so I might be safe. ;-)

Send me your address. I will send you a handy little pair of Pampered Chef bamboo tongs made specifically for fishing hot stuff out of a toaster. And then all your troubles will be over, you brave little warriors!

I agree with Lana! You need some kitchen tongs especially made for Pop Tart removal :)

One more reason that I eat my Pop Tarts raw. ;o)

Oh heee heee, ha ha ha. You are cracking me up here. I can't believe how lethal those things are! I am never buying another Pop Tart in my life. Or at least for a week. :)
