New place to get burned

Unread post by Martin Pansch » Mon Nov 02, 2015 10:11 pm

I got a burn in a new place last night, at least from steel versus a slice of pizza. I was hammering on some steel when my brother stopped by. We were talking while I was working when a piece of hot scale flew off at warp factor zillion, made a b-line for my maw and burned me on the roof of my mouth just a little bit forward of my uvula. After coughing, gagging and swigging half my ice tea I was better, if still a little surprised. My brother, meanwhile, was suppressing a chuckle.

Not really sure how to avoid this in the future. Maybe less talking while I work. Or wearing a protective mask. Maybe one of those Mexican wrestler masks? I can be El Herrero! Bringing the hammer down upon my foes! I'll have to come up with some sort of signature move involving grabbing my foe in the hurty bits with some bolt tongs... Then again, since it only happened once in 18 years or so maybe I just chalk it up to a weird coincidence and hammer on?
