But once... an egg exploded as I was standing there looking down into the pan. POW. A piece of hot egg narrowly missed my eye ( lucky me ) and I nursed the area on my upper cheek with Aloe or some kind of cold balm that I had in the fridge. Never again looked at them while cooling them.
Okay, we don't need to cook in the same place.
A sweet potato I was microwaving once burst into flame. We had to replace the microwave and tell the alarm people to call off the firetrucks.

I don't know left and right. I always have to stop and think about it and even then I get it wrong as often as not.
Oh my gosh! Me too. It will take me a good 10 seconds to figure out which is left and which is right. It really does seem to me that the left side ought to be called "right" and vice versa. When getting directions, I have to be told "turn north" rather than "turn left".
When I was in elementary school my mother would pack me a bologna and cheese sandwich on white bread almost every day. I would begin by smashing it totally flat. Then I would nibble it into a perfect square, then nibble the square into a circle, and then into a smaller square, and so on until I had a circle or square about the size of a stamp, and then I'd just pop that in my mouth.
I eat my boogers. It's healthy to eat boogers, because they're really pieces of your brain falling out of your nose. By eating boogers, you are recycling your brain, placing yourself at lower risk of developing various mental disorders...
Seriously, though, I ALWAYS eat the French fries before I touch the cheeseburger. I can never comfortably eat a burger until I finished the fries. And if I get Burger King, I'll eat the fries first, but if I find fries in the bag after I consumed the burger, I feel very uneasy.
