RIP CHI Flat Iron
Listening to: Spacewalk by Starkey
Just a small happening and safety advisory … when flat ironing your hair and multi-tasking be sure to put the lid of the toilet seat down.
Last week I stepped on the cord while reaching for my make-up bag and sent the iron right into the toilet. At first I was scared of getting electrocuted so I called for Clarence to assist me as I watched the searing hot flat iron expel a black liquid into the toilet.
He walked in and unplugged it without hesitation. (ugg.)
The next day I felt so lucky that the local base exchange had my exact item in stock and I wouldn’t have to wait an entire light-year to receive a new one. (shipments to this island have been delayed as of late due to imaginary typhoons).
Upon purchasing this item I hear husband say “One hundred dollars!?” and then I remind him that he just purchased another motorcycle (#4) for several thousand dollars without one gripe from the likes of me.
Sometimes I have to send him gentle reminders that he is over reacting by way of folded arms and a face that depicts “are you F’ing serious?”
We’re still friends.
