Let me tell you a story. A couple years ago Shane bought about a dozen fresh jalapenos, a block of cream cheese, some bacon, and a box of kitchen gloves. He told me about all these things EXCEPT the box of gloves and asked me to make some jalapeno poppers.
So one afternoon I pulled out the three ingredients I needed and started cutting the jalapenos in half, scooping their seeds out. Now, I know I need to be careful with jalapenos. So after I was done I washed my hands. I washed them twice actually.
This was a couple years ago so I can’t remember why I would do this but at one point my hands rubbed my eyes. MY WORD. I thought my eyes were going to burn off.
I am standing over the bathroom sink washing my hands and my face over and over again with dish soap. At the time William was about two years old. I remember him running back and forth to get me clean wash cloths as I needed them. I couldn’t open my eyes and kept thinking “I am going to go blind because of these stupid jalapenos.”
Thankfully, I didn’t go blind. The burning stopped a couple hours later and when Shane came home he then informed me of the gloves he had bought. Moral of the story: when you make these delicious jalapeno poppers (which you must make), please, wear gloves.
