Dork Moment Number 1


Join the fun at Dorkbloggers!!
Our landlord had sold the apartment we lived in, and decided not to tell us until we only had a week to move. Instead of making a stink, we did oblige as good tenants.


One of the last days, we were cleaning up. I went to clean the stove (note I am NOT a domestic Godess of any sort as I am about to prove). Parently, I turned on the burner. My husband had about 50 ties on the top of the stove ready to be brought to the car.


Yup, fire alarm went off shortly there after as they burst into flames. Didn't go up all the way, but were burnt into at least two pieces. This was 10 years ago, and my husband STILL brings it up on occaision.

Mert---Oh God, not you too!!!! I need to study the workings of the oven. My husband is a cook and he has his dream range gas top now. I WILL NOT touch it. I love my house too much.

Zig---luckily no smoke damage, but regardless the landlord did nor properly disclose where our deposit was, and so it was going to be forfeited even if we burned the darned house down LOL. Which we would not do of course. While I am an inept Domestic Goddess, I am good in an emergency!! Smoke was mostly due to the quick flash, that was contained in a nano second.

If this helps:

Evidence one: I have never had NATURALLY blond hair. I plead the fifth to my hair color on the day in question.

Evidence two: According to a video that I was just reviewing of myself, a truth that I don't see when I look in the mirror has come to light. The true color of my hair is now.....gray. Sob.
