I used about 1/3 of a chili in last nights dinner, granted it was extra hot chili, but I was not prepared for how bad it hurt after. See there is a reason for why Hameed should do all the cooking. Anyway, I washed my hands. Washed them again and again. It did not help. Of course I forgot all about it and touched my face and my eyes.....Ouch did that ever hurt.
This morning I washed my hands several times again AND took a shower. You should think the chili was gone or at least pretty much gone... Do you know what hurts more then accidentally touching your eyes? Touching them on purpose while trying to stick your contacts in.
Ouch! ouch! ouch! For a while there I thought I was going blind. 5 containers of eye drops later, my eyes feels somewhat oki. I might possible keep my eyesight anyway.
So I did some research and it seems like it is recommended to wear some of these when you cut chili:
Unless you have one of these to handle the cutting:
I promise I will remember that for next time there is any chili involved here in this house. After all I sort of like my eyes.
Some more research (thanx Mr Google) and I found some tips on what could help me right now. I'm of to try one of them (or possible all).
