Yesterday evening I did something amazingly stupid. After making sure the coals in the barbecue were hot I cleaned the grill, then lifted said grill to spread the coals out. The trouble is, I grabbed the grill with my bare hand.


Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I reached out and attempted to lift a 475* metal grill with my bard hand.


The good news is that it was my left hand I seared rather than my right.

Ah yes. It's known as a play on words.
