Literally set my house on fire this weekend.  My kitchen has very little cabinet space.  In desperation while moving in, I put a few dishes in the oven.  Including large plastic bowls.  I haven't cooked much lately.  Then this weekend, I decided to make a delicious chicken dish.  In the oven.  And turned it on to preheat.  With the dishes still inside.  Came back into the kitchen a few minutes later to hear a strange sound.  That sound was FIRE.  In my oven.

Literally used a fire extinguisher for the first time in my life this weekend.  The fire would not be fanned out and I didn't have any flour (told ya I haven't cooked much lately).

Literally got my feet ran over by an old lady with a walker yesterday.  Retirement villages are dangerous places!  And old people are very impatient.  I could insert a joke here about WHY that may be, but you may not appreciate my dark humor.

Literally cringed when I saw THIS:

No, no, NO!!!!


Literally snorted while watching THIS:




Happy Tuesday, Y'all!

Those last two -
One thing that might last forever is that person's stupidity.
The clip shows that some men are sensitive or good actors.

Oh good to know your oven fire didn't consume you.

Glad you ended with a funny note, because gracious, girl, your week makes mine look like a cake walk! Fire in the oven! You win!

I've done that before. Made Christmas cookies, put them in a plastic container in the oven so that they weren't on the counter. Turned the oven on to make dinner and...

Well, let's say that melted plastic and plastic covered cookies are a &^%*(# to clean up. :)

Hugs!

Oh my hell! I'm so glad the fire wasn't worse! Thank God it was just some melted plastic, and you weren't left homeless.

I saw the Will Ferrell clip a few days ago, and loved it!

I'm with Bill, that moron's stupidity will last forever, as will the tattoo artist's. Not sure which one decided on adding the apostrophe, but they both should be slapped!

Oh no!!!! Fire! That is scary. So glad you are okay. Thank goodness you came back in the room when you did!

That tattoo. Noooooo!!!! HAHAHA!

And thanks for the clip. I hadn't seen it. HEHE!

Yikes (on more than one account). Glad you didn't burn your house down.

I really like this post idea--It's easy but allows for creativity, too. Was it your idea? Will you be doing it again?

Sorry about the fire. Putting things in the oven is always dangerous. Will Farrel is so funny. I have to admit I am so angry with her for cheating on him!
I'm with Will all the way.
