What Hurts

I’ll tell you what really hurts.

Getting cayenne pepper in your eye, that is what causes some pain.

  1. Owe!!! Owe, owe, owe!!! Hurts just thinking about it.

  2. Ummmmmm yeah… but you know whats worse?? Pepperspray and a clumsy male… there’s a story behind that one!! Thankfully it didn’t happen to me!!

  3. Holy crap.

    You know what else hurts? Chopping jalapenos, washing your hands insufficiently, and then putting in your contacts.

    I’ve done it a couple of times, and every time, I’ve wanted to remove my skin with a vegetable peeler just to have something else to think about.

  4. Ouch!!! I cringe just thinking about it, since it’s happened too many times to count in this house.

    Re: Stephanie’s comment – We’ve had the forgetful male incident happen many times, or he washes his hands but still doesn’t get all the oil off. I had a similar incident once during that special time of the month. And that’s all I’m going to say about that.

  5. OUCH!

  6. Ouch! Hope you’re ok! I’m such a baby about getting anything in my eye.

  7. That’s hot. In totally the wrong way.

  8. i just found out this week that those have the same effect on the, um, nutsack.
    (and i still haven’t been to stop laughing about it…)

  9. Ouch.

  10. I got Tiger Balm up my nose … I think that may be comparable. I, too, am an idiot. :)

  11. We had an incident years ago, when someone gave my husband fresh habanero peppers (the hottest on the pepper scale). He decided to cut one up and pulled out the seeds with his bare hands (DUH) so we could grow some of our own. He washed his hands and went to use the bathroom… and ended up sreaming and in the shower with me trying to rinse off the pepper remnants with every kind of soap (sounds kinky but not!). He was almost crying and ready to go to the ER!

  12. All I can think is that sounds extremely painful.

    sadly, i can beat that…suffice to say there was homemade salsa, poorly-washed hands, and boredom-induced masturbation involved…now THAT hurts…

  14. I’ve experienced that. It does hurt. Bad.

  15. Next time poke yourself with the green end.

  16. Oh yeah. BTDT. When you watch those cooks on TV, they are always measuring the cayenne in the palm of their hand. I had no idea that doing so would (1) hurt my hand! (I’m a wimp) and (2) stick to my hands and eventually get into my eyes.

  17. and he almost looks happy about it!

  18. Chasinash says:

    My husband makes a lot of Thai food with VERY hot peppers – like 30 times hotter than a Habanero. And he pees standing up.

    Yes, THAT is pain, my friends.

    I also do not recommend wiping your anus.

  19. hurts even more if you need to scratch THAT itch before washing your hands thoroughly.

    But man, is it funny watching someone else doing it!

  20. Are you winking like George Costanza in that one episode of Seinfeld when he got the grapefruit in his eye?
