    I think I have done a first. On Saturday I decided that I needed to iron my cotton shorts. I had just gotten out of the shower and only had my undies on at this time. While I was ironing the shorts I got the iron too far over to the side where my tummy was. You guessed it, the iron hit my tummy. But not for long. No my tummy is not that big I was just standing too close to the ironing board and brought the iron over too far. OUCH!!

    You're not alone! My mom did that a few times. She used to iron her uniforms at 4 in the morning.

    Yep, did this a month ago, except I was ironing pieces for a quilt top and it was too hot in the house so I was ironing just the same.

    I did that in my 20's (long time ago) and when I went to the Doctor a couple of years later he thought I had my appendix out! Had a really bad scar,but has disappeared over the years!

    OMG the memories came flooding back. When I was about 5-6 my grandma was teaching me to fish the clothes out of the rinse water for her to grab and put thru the wringer washer. You guessed it. She got her hand caught in the wringer it went thru to the wrist and she hit that thing on the top and it reversed and ran her hand back out. No breaks just sore for a long time. I never went near that washer again.

    Oh I did that when I was a kid helping my grandma, ran my arm in up above the elbow. Grandma hit the thing to stop it and ran my arm back out. No breaks but it was good that I was a skinny kid.

    We forget how hot they get sometimes...I'll bet there aren't many here who haven't burned themselves at least once! ;-)

    I grabbed the hot iron as it was heading for the floor. Needless to say, I let go and the iron hit the floor anyway (with a fair amount of my DNA attached)

    I have a lovely upside down "happy face" between my breasts from flipping the bread pan, fresh out of the bread machine...it flipped too far and my chest stopped it. :( Apparently irons aren't the only hot things around.

    Been there. Only I was sitting down with just my nighty on and pressing a quilt block. It wasn't my stomach but rather one of the old girls that had rolled out to the edge of my belly. LOL

    A couple months ago I dropped a hot curling iron in my cleavage.
    From then on I curl my hair with a shirt on

    You would loose your bet. Had the same thing happen to me...and I still have a scar from it, several years later.

    Yesterday while ironing some of my fabrics, the iron fell on the floor from the board and it was less than an inch from my foot. My heartbeat wouldn't come to normal for a few mins after that :)

    Glad to see that I am not alone. However, I do not wish that anyone get burned in any way.
