I hope this doesn't leave a mark because it will be difficult to explain

I just made some bread, and the dough was very sticky and I had a lot of trouble transferring it to the oven. As I was bending over the 450-degree oven for two or so minutes coaxing the dough onto the cookie sheet, I became aware of an intermittent burning sensation at my throat. When I finally stood up, I realized it was from the searing hot metal of my necklace as it swung back and forth against my neck.

Reminds me of all the times I thought "Why am I so hot?" then realized my pregnant belly was about a millimeter away from the frying pan. Awesome. Glad you're alright!

I've done that with my hair dryer.

And Becca's comment reminds me of when I was standing at the kitchen counter, up against the dishwasher which had just finished its cycle. Likewise, I thought, "Why am I so hot?" and realized it was from the HOT STEAM venting out the top of the dishwasher, at about the level of THE BABY.

I am so, so glad I'm not the only person who does this sort of thing. Ah, vindication.
