...getting hot oil sprayed in my face.
That is a picture of me after I was sprayed in the face with hot oil. Not right after, because when it happened I made a noise like this, "whaaaoooohmpgh!!" and started crying like a baby. The above picture was taken a few minutes after, once I had recovered from the shock/pain that grease-in-eyeball evokes and was only mildly cursing my love of cooking.
So, I have a question you Celebrity Chefs that fry bacon and chicken on the television... how do you avoid the scalding hot grease that spews all over the kitchen?? Does someone ever yell CUT! while you make "whaaaoooohmpgh!!" noises and cry like a baby? No? That's just me? Liars.
*So I ask you, dear people of the Internet, what could you do without in the kitchen?"
