Burn Update

After I was absolutely sure that there was no residual heat left in my thumb (because I'd been holding ice on it for half an hour), I tried butter - figuring that it couldn't make it worse at this point.

Hey, this is science, sometimes we must suffer.

It hurt like crazy immediately. There was no helpful effect at all. I rinsed it off as fast as I could.

What ended up doing the trick was Solarcaine spray. So much for home remedies. Good thing Walgreen's is only a mile from here!

Happy Saturday! I'm headed to The Big City in the Middle with Karen.

You must read the whole comment... which was "Put butter on it... JUST KIDDING!!!" Now I feel partially responsible for worsening your condition.
Geez,there's a reason we use the stuff for COOKING!!!
