How Did This Happen? Vol. 1

I had a large soup pot

that had been nesting in large frying pan

and was stuck

as it had been for the past five years.

But I had been using it anyway without incident.

Until Saturday

when I was making butternut squash soup

and transferred the hot pot/pan apparatus to the counter

and placed it on a potholder

which caught on fire

and seared to the bottom of the pan.

Acting quickly, I swiftly pivoted the whole flaming mass to the sink

and extinguished the flames

but not


searing my wrist

on the side of the pot.

And that is how I hurt myself this time.
But the soup was great.
