Added some peppers to an ongoing ferment earlier. Telling myself, like I always do, "meh I don't need gloves I'll just be mindful not to touch my face". Now a couple hours later, as always happens, my face is on fire.
@rho Been there! And if it's lucky it's only my face... decided to keep the gloves in the kitchen. It really helped my 'ahhh, fuckit I don't need it' behaviour when I hit above scotch bonnet level.
@fnord Sad thing is the gloves were sitting right in front of me.
"Surely handling these scorpion peppers won't come back to bite me!"
I'm a slow learner I guess.
@rho a sense of adventure definitely spices up life
