I just cut up a jalapeno.  And now my hands are burning.  And I made the mistake of touching my right eye, so it is burning too.  I am afraid to look in the mirror in case I look like Quasimodo.  I feel like I am on fire.  Make it stop.  Please.

Oh, and yesterday at physical therapy we did some new stuff.  So I can't walk because my leg and butt on my left side only are very very sore.  Crazy sore.  I am going to have one very buff leg.

Yesterday I actually made the comment "If it is good enough for Emeril, it is good enough for me."  And I don't really like Emeril.  I should have gone with Bobby Flay.

OUCH. I have done that so many times. I suggest wearing latex gloves when dealing with peppers from now on.

I am laughing so hard right now. Kevin did this a few weeks ago with a serrano. For some reason he didn't think it was so funny. According to research (the wisdom of the internet) the best way to treat the eye burning is cheese or milk in the eye (the fat pulls out the burning oils or something). Have fun with that. And for hands use rubbing alcohol or Purell. Now you're prepared for next time. Oh, but I guess gloves would be easier.

My mom made salsa one time, and actually got burns on her hands! She ended up having to have the Dr. check them out because it was pretty bad.

Apparently, one is supposed to wear gloves when handling hot peppers! ;-)
