Unless of course you have loving siblings who make sure you never live that one moment of carelessness down.
Yes, my friends. I am one of those loving siblings who will never stop torturing my little sister for that one time she had that incident with the iron.
Bwahahaha. Sibling love!
My sister probably remembers more of the specific details of where she was going and why she needed an unwrinkled shirt.
I'd like to say it involved picture taking of some sort but that may just be wishful thinking on my part.
I just remember that she was wearing a button down shirt with a collar.
It had been ironed but when she put it on we noticed the collar was still wrinkled.
So my mother told her to go iron it.
Which she promptly did.
Without wasting any time.
We heard a cry of pain or dismay or probably both.
Found her with a burn on her chin in the perfect shape of the tip of the iron.
My friends, somewhere on this great green earth there actually exist pictures of this phenomenon. I know this for a fact. I have actually seen them. But by some infinitely tragic circumstance, I did not end up in possession of said
Perfect iron tip shaped burn.
You know all those warnings that come with appliances. The ones we all laugh at and think, "no one would ever actually..." There is a good reason for those warnings. I mean who would actually use a curling iron while sleeping? Or immerse a toaster in water?
Or forget to remove their clothing before ironing it?
Love you sister!!!!
That is why ironing is hazardous to your health and I have personally avoided the activity ever since.
