Just in case there is anyone else out there that thought is would be a great idea to buy the bag of jalapenos at Aldi's this weekend, because they were on clearance for 99 cents.
Someone might think that buying a bag of peppers while on clearance is a great way to stretch your dollar.
But now I would say that is hazardous to your health.
Don't believe me?
Well this is what happened to me over a 12 hour period.
I cut up the bag of peppers put them in individual bags and stuck them in the freezer.
One would think that washing your hands twice really good would help to get the spicy part of the peppers off of your hands.
But I would beg to differ.
An hour after washing my hands I scratched my eye.
And HOLY FIREBALLS, BATMAN!!
My eye felt like I had little men with blow torches on my eyelids!
I had no idea what to do.
I put water on it.
The burning just got worse.
So Mr. Genius, being the genius he is googled "jalapeno in eye".
Seriously, what did people do before Google??
Just in case anyone else is in my little perdicament I will share with you what you would do in this situation.
Get a shot glass full of milk and place it on your eye.
Since we do not live in a frat house, we do not have any shot glasses.
So the boys little medicine cup worked instead.
It took about 10 minutes for the burning to stop, but it did finally subside.
THANK YOU JESUS!
I washed my hands again and again and again and then made very sure I didn't get my hands anywhere near my eyes.
Apparently in the middle of the night I have no control over my hands, I woke up to burning eye balls.
I blindly walked down to the fridge.
Just incase anyone else is in my situation, and you accendently grab the almond milk.
No worries. It works too.
Ahhh. Relief again.
So I again washed my hands, dug under my nails, washed my elbows.
Hey, at this point I was desperate.
Finally I went back to sleep, tying my hands down.
Then came time to take a shower.
And you guess it. I got my eyes burning again.
I took my shower completely with my eyes closed.
I think that by this time, my body was immuned to the burning.
By the time I got out of the shower, I was fine.
Apparently the shower got rid off the rest of the jalapeno juices.
Holy Moly peeps! I think those were the stongest jalapenos ever to grow on this earth!
Have any of you had this happen to you?
I am definitely going to think twice before buying a hot pepper now.
