Yesterday morning I was in the kitchen for a couple of hours. Making biscuits, eggs and bean soup for later in the day. In the end I had one little burn on my finger from soup splashing on it.
Dearth was helping with dishes for a grand total of about 10 minutes in the kitchen. During that time he managed to break a small bowl and get several cuts on the inside of his middle finger. Nothing serious, but it did require a band aid.
Not to be outdone. Deb is making milk shakes and using a cheap ceramic handled ice cream scoop for a total of about 5 minutes. The handle breaks and she gashes her thumb. It is a good one and probably could have used a few stitches, but she settled for wrapping it well and putting a splint on it (to keep it from reopening).
I ended up finishing the dishes, making the milkshakes and administering first aid. If I didn't know any better I would think they did these things to stay out of the kitchen.
