Once Seems Not to be Enough

Twice in the past two weeks, I have used pot holders to carefully removed a covered dish from a hot.

Twice, I have put the pot holders down.

Twice, Cuppa has asked if the dish is hot enough or if it needs to go back in.

Twice, I have picked up the lid ... with bare hand.

Twice!

Sometimes we do things without thinking. I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. The only difference is I only did it once. I agree with the others, you probably won't do it a third time.
Take care.
Blessings,
Mary

I think you should make a habit of it...you can do what you want as many times as you want.

So there.

Oh dear...

I'm pretty sure you won't be proving that the third time is a charm, will you?

Have a SAFE weekend!

Only twice? Well done! ;o)

Janet said...

You make that sound like a bad thing.

What?

Oh yeah, been there, done that! I'd like to say it was only twice but I'm not so sure that would be an honest number. =O I hate it when the body insists on reacting without consulting the brain.

I'm wondering if this another one of those intrinsic differences between men and women...

I do that sort of thing all the time. It actually is comforting to know I'm not the only one. I hope they're right and that you don't do it a third time. You can actually buy heatproof gloves here, short and long (to the elbow). I'm thinking of doing that. You actually have to think about taking a pair of gloves off, whereas it's easy to just put down a pot holder.
