Ok, you have all seen those funny cartoons about some guy trying to light up his grill and having it explode and singe the crap out of him. Ha Ha!!! Well, I am not laughing tonight. I was all set to grill some fajita meat that I had marinaded and I went out to get the gas grill going. I turned the gas on and hit the ignition button several times with no luck. So I went in the house and got one of those Bic long lighters that you use for lighting the fire place or the grill. There is a hole on the bottom of the grill to insert the lighter and fire it up.
Well, I clicked the lighter a few times and nothing happened so I pulled it out of the grill to see what was up and clicked it again. There was enough gas in the air by this time that all I saw was a huge fire ball and WHOOSH!!!.
HFS!!! My hair was on fire!!! I did not think to do stop, drop, and roll, but I was trying to pull my shirt off and cover my head. Nice... the neighbors get to see me with my top off and my head on fire. Well, I have singed off part of my left eyebrow, and half of my head is all F--KED UP! It has a funny orange color to it, and some of it has fallen out. The other fried stuff is matted up in my head and it smells something terrible.
I made an emergency call to the guy who cuts my hair to see if I could catch him before he closed to try to get in tomorrow it see if any of it can be salvaged or if the six month effort to grow out my hair has to be cut off and I look like Annie Lennox again.
Top it off, I ended up ruining all but one piece of the meat and had to toss it in the trash because it would have been eating carcinogens.
Hey! How was your day???
