death by hair straightener.

adam under a rainbow with his golf ball. never been so happy.

Adam got up at the crack of dawn this morning to golf with his pops, so I had a nice leisurely morning alone. Long shower, breakfast, yada yada yada.
Then, I almost died.
The culprit=hair straightener.
3 inches away from my face and >KaBoOm!<
A fireball the size of a bowling ball.
I may not have died, but i'm surprised the flames didn't burn my eyeballs out.
It wasn't until I got to work that I noticed the palm of my hand was BLACK.
...and now my mouth tastes like metal. (?)

mmm k.
kinda traumatic.
Naturally, I googled "hair straightener explosions" and found a forum of survivors who made me feel that I wasn't alone:

"my hair straightener tried to kill me!"
"OMG my straightener exploded!"
"A flame coming from the center of my hair straightener!"
" I got a big zap and my hair was scorched!"
"My new hair straightener isn't life-threatening"

yikes. I don't know if my hair will ever look as good again...
