I Burned My Arm

if you burned your arm...or any other part of your body i suppose 112 People

    Ouch!

    ...

     I was making spaghetti for my 6 year old cousin. While I was emptying the pot, it kinda fell back and hit my arm. It was a big burn and most of it blistered. Later that evening, I was putting my dog in the kennel and he scratched my burn... Ohh how that hurt...

    Quite Often.

    I often burned myself while cooking. once or twice because I wanted to harm myself. And the one time it was worst was when I was about 3 or so. My mum was on the phone and the stove was on, well I was in the kitchen and put my hand onto the stove. I think my whole hand was...

    Welding

    There was a point where I thought I might become a sculptor.  I'm still not ruling that out, actually.  I've done some woodshop, took a bit of stonecutting...anyway, one summer I decided to try out a class in welding, maybe make a big wrought iron thingy. Then --- there...

    Just Wanted to See!

    This'll sound really daft, but is so true. I wanted to see if it hurt. And it did. Alot. I heard how people all complained about getting burnt so I wanted to see if they were right or not. They were. God, I'm an idiot :)

    Yup

    I have burned my arm a few times, on pots and pans and candles and engines. The oddest time was when my mother asked me to come help her in the kitchen and just as I got near her she swung up and around with a huge pan just out of the oven with a fish in it lol and planted it...

    Liquids May Be Hot

    Stupid

    I burned my arm with a lighter for bizarre reasons that I understand less now than I did 3 and a half years ago. It was more like branding I guess. I held the flame for about a minute and then pressed the metal against my arm for the same amount of time. I was able to hide it...

      Was making coffee, just making coffee...who knew the horrors that would befall me as I stood there making coffee. I held my arm too close to the jug, and suddenly a searing pain and then... a red mark on my forearm, which would become a bumpy blister the next day.
