Know what?

What really, really hurts?

When you strike a match and the end bit ignites, then flies off the matchstick and adheres to your face.

And what's really great is that it happened 15 minutes before our dinner guests arrive so I have a lovely red burn on my face to greet them with.

Fuck.

Fuck indeed. On your face? Ow!

Oh my god, are you serious? I have never had that happen to me, but now I'm never lighting a match again!
I hope you still had a good night, burned face and all!

It really really hurt. And today I have a lovely burn on my cheek, like the opposite of a beauty spot (an ugly spot?)

Let that be a lesson to everyone...don't try to light candles when you're in a bit of a hurry because you will MAIM yourself doing it.

Still, could have set my hair ablaze, so I am thankful that it just left me with the potential for an interesting scar.

Manuel, please PLEASE share a photo of you as a Goth. Please.

I'm begging.

rivergirlie, yes indeedy. And now it's healing up I keep accidentally rubbing it and going "ow fuckit" which is not very professional when you're sat in the office.
