For some reason I’ve owned a hot water bottle since we’ve lived in this house. I haven’t used it in …… ever? (It was still in the box.) Lately, though, I’ve been enjoying it’s hot-watery goodness. Tuck it under your feet when you’re curled up on the couch under a blanket – it almost makes t.v. watching bearable.
Getting it ready tonight, though, I thought that this would be my post for the day. Then I proceeded to pour some near-boiling water over my thumb. Here’s the kicker, though – I didn’t stop pouring. I’m used to plunging my hand into fairly hot water to warm up my hands, so this didn’t really hurt.
Then it hurt quite a bit.
My feet are warm, though.
