No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Last night, my brother came over for dinner and TV time. I cooked a good meal, then decided to make some cookies for dessert.

Everything was going well. The cookies were coming out nice and brown without charred bottoms. Then, one of the little treats refused to slide off the spatula. I gave it a little help, then heard a sizzle. When I pulled my hand away, I realized that sound was a piece of chocolate on my left thumb.

My brother was impressed I did not utter a single expletive. I was clearly in shock! I immediately grabbed some ice, which might have helped it. Right now, it's just a (very sore) red mark. I'm hoping it doesn't turn into a big, nasty blister. Only time will tell...
