The Pain of the Popcorn

We have an air popcorn popper (no microwave) and so Nate was making popcorn with it last night.

At one point while the corn was popping he felt something like a "bug bite" between his fingers.

As a reflex he sort of squished his fingers together only to realize that made it hurt worse.

He then realized there was a hot kernel stuck between his fingers and got it out fast.

The photo shows the blisters that a hot kernel can cause after only a few seconds.

Nothing a little aloe vera gel can't heal in a short time but still, the pain. Owweeee.
