Hello! I am mandeloo. I like this place, it's full of awesomesauce. Now onto my thread.

...puts on a serious face...

the flat iron is evil evil EVIL. She tempts you with her promises of shiny beautifully straight hair of silk and then when you least expect it and your 2 year old has decided to toilet paper the entire house while you're trying to use this tool of doom, and you reach down to grab it and you make the mistake of not paying COMPLETE attention it happens...you wrap four fingers of your dominant hand around the evil jaws of this thing and 450 degrees of burning hellfire sear the flesh of your precious digits. AND! as you recoil in pain you have never felt before in your life and begin to sob and fall all over yourself to run your hand under cold water..

you can almost hear it laughing.

I may never go near it again. NEVER!

and hello again!! :cheese:

Haha, welcome. :D I have been burned like that many a time, and yet I still (ocasionally!) use flatirons. Bad, I know! It just has to be the Gods of Hair looking down on us and being horrified at the extreme heat we put on our hair. :P

I am so sorry this happened to you!

I remember burning my forehead with a curling iron once and having to walk around with a big burn mark... not nice!

You have my sympathy.

I hope your hand is ok!

For a while there I had a cheerier note, one that involved my fingers nearly being restored to their once lovely state. Then, in one of the boredom moments that sporadically pepper my life I found....


a white dot! OH NOOOO not a white dot...ohnoohnoohnoohno.

save me! someone?

Oh, I am so sorry this happened to you, but at least your kid did not grab it instead. My neice got ahold of my sister's and that was the point where she stopped using hers.
