Angry Warning to the Ladies....

Warning to the Ladies....or men with long hair!!

Funny but not tooo funny. We have been using our oven for just a bit over one year. I'm very comfortable and have no fear of the blazing hot temps! Last night we were hosting a mini high school reunion lots of people and tons going on we were running late so Phil left me with some of the duties. As Phil went in to take a shower he asked if i could in 10 mins time throw a log on the fire. So after 10 mins I go to the oven and toss the log in. It falls off and i wanted it on the top. I grab the welding gloves reach in and place the log on top of the fire. I hear something sizzle and then a nasty smell. Well i burnt my hair and a good chunk of it. If was coming off in my hands in chunks its a mess.

new rule for me when working in the oven the hair is held back in a pony tail!!

<nods> Both fire and power tools are excellent reasons for pony tails...

Buns are even better...

Maybe it's time to put clinker grabbers back in production:

Hey Dmun,

Does that Clinker Grabber work pretty well for you?

That is a darn good looking tool, and it looks like it should be helpful in moving wood around in the hot oven...

I only use it once in a while, but when you need it, there's nothing like it.

Every house that had a coal furnace had one, which was almost every house. They're surprisingly rare now.

I burned my hair the other day, and I have short hair. I did not even notice. I was back in the kitchen and my wife asked what was in my hair. We quickly determined I had singed my hair throwing a log in the oven. My wife had a really hard time getting her laughter under control long enough to trim the burnt part out before our guests came over...

OO Drake, didn't you notice that horrid smell?

I usually do have my hair up when dealing with the oven- I also have a cap with LED lights in the brim I wear when it's not bright daylight out to help me see in the oven. I always put my hair up under it when I wear it.

I watched my dad's hair burn when I was little and we were roasting marshmallows on the shore- he didn't know it was on fire and kept trying to fight my mom off when she was hitting his head! It took a few seconds for him to figure it out, but I'll always remember the way she took off for him screaming "John John John" and swiping at his head.

From Urban Dictionary:
Quote:
Hair on Fire

1) The event used to describe when the threshold of creativity has been crossed over into insanity

2) The event used to describe the exact moment that started a downfall.
