Burned Lip

I learned the stupid way that food can indeed burn you.  Is this what happens when the girlfriend goes out of town to visit her parents and I rely on the microwave to eat?  Maybe.

There was some previously cooked hard boiled eggs in the fridge.  I was getting hungry and so put one of them in a bowl and then in the microwave for 40 seconds.  It finished, and I touched it with my hands.  It was not hot, but not cold either.  So I took a bite.  Chewed.  Then went in for the second bite.  And boom!!  The egg exploded from the inside, there was yolk all over my upper lip and on the ground, and then my lip started hurting really bad.  Yes, I’m an idiot.

I immediately put water on my lips, and then got some ice.  Filled a cup with ice water and then just soaked my upper lip in it.  It felt fine when in the water, but it felt like it was burned once I removed it.  I went to the bathroom to look in the mirror and it looked red and a little swollen.  The top skin layer of my upper lip was also white and peeling off, with a part of it already gone.  I just looked online, took a couple of advil and have been putting A + D on it often.  Will probably put a slab of it on before I go to sleep tonight.  Smooth huh?  Maybe I should go out the rest of the week for dinner instead of “making” something.
