Okay, I did something stupid. Stupid stupid. And it hurt a LOT.
I'm making chicken gumbo today, which involves, among other things, chopping up jalapenos. I thought about what a few of you here have mentioned, rubbing your eyes and stuff, and was careful not to touch the insides of the peppers, and was doubly careful about not touching my eyes or face. However, I did get a little jalapeno juice on my fingers, so I wiped them off (til I could properly wash my hands) on my opposite forearm.
Which was just tattooed. Yesterday.
Cue a LOT of squealing and the Angry Pain Dance™. I'm also pretty sure I scared the beans out of every living thing in the house. Both dogs fled for the living room, all three cats fled to the basement. Sorry everyone, I'm an idiot.
