Lili's thought for the day

Did you ever burn your face listening to a cake?

No, but I did burn my face listening to a model-rocket motor I had imprudently modified. I had a magnificent powder burn from that. The Doc gave me some greasy ointment to put on it, so I looked horrible, and could gross people out with my appearance.

It really just amounted to a bad sunburn, with skin peeling off later, but looked horrible, with the blackness of the powder burn, the red rawness of the new skin underneath, and the greasy ointment.

Hey, at least it got me thrown out of Algebra class! I was sitting there one day, idly peeling strips of dead skin from my face, and chewing them and eating them, when the gal sitting next to me made throwing-up noises. I thought nothing of that and continued to chew, but the teacher yelled at me and told me to Get Out Right Now! But, sir, I tried to say, but he wasn't hearing anything from me. I went to the library and had a good time reading books and eating peelings from my face.254
