Funny, my arm stinks

I had a little trouble lighting the grill today. Ever since my husband cleaned it, the electric starter hasn't worked. We bought a new lighter (my son used up our other one while lighting fireworks) and it took longer than expected to figure it out. Meanwhile, the gas is building up. I finally got the lighter started and POOF! a big ball of fire burned all the hair off of my arm. I scrubbed the burnt hair off, but I still get a slight whiff of singed hair. At least the chicken came out great . . .

HA, lol that is something I can relate to. Glad to hear you are still in one piece, although a bit hairless, and your chicken was yummy.
That always freaks me out when I have to start the bbq, because I know the POOF is coming!!

I have to laugh at this :) Maybe that's the secret ingredient to making yummy chicken!

Well, I'm glad you still have all of your appendages! Quite the hair removal system and I just spent $9 on the "smooth away" (the things we buy the older and more gullible and hairier we get!). Could be much worse and could be worse places to lose your hair!

Ouch! man,you have to be careful around those gas appliances! I once burned all my eyelashes and eyebrows of on a gas heating stove that someone had left the gas on! Scary stuff!
