The Day My Husband Blew Himself Up

The other day, Mr. Wonderful was getting ready to make supper (I worked that day, supper was his duty!), cleaning the grill...he was gonna make some pork chops.

I was minding my own business when I heard an odd sound.

Kinda like a door slamming...followed quickly by, "Holy sh#$!!!!"

Alarmed, I looked out our bedroom window, onto the deck...where I saw my handsome husband looking down curiously into his hands (or so I thought)...fearing something terrible, I ran outside, and saw this:

Well, what the hey is he lookin' at???

Upon closer inspection I saw this...

Whatevertheheck is that on his arms????

Oh. My. Gosh. It's hair.

Singed arm hair.

And that odd sound...was our grill...apparently malfunctioning, so my beloved tried to light it with a lighter.


Not gonna say anything more on that, lest I want to get divorced.

He also had some nicely singed eyelashes too...brows were saved, but the lashes on his left eye have seen better days!

There was an odd smell of burned hair...and once I knew everyone was okay...lot's of laughs, guffaws, snorts, almost peed in pants, and "let me get my camera!!!!"

It was kind of hilarious.

And the pork chops were delicious!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out.

And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
