Just Say No to the Pepper Juice

First of all I'd like to give a big thank you to Deirdra over at A Storybook World for bestowing on me the creative blog award.

How sweet!
I never thought of myself as terribly creative so this came as a big surprise.

And she's got a great blog so you should check it out. She writes fantasy and has some fantasy posts along with interviews with people in the writing world.

Now onto other pressing matters.
I have some important information to impart to you.

When have hot peppers
DO NOT wipe your hands on a napkin and than wipe said napkin over your face-more specifically the nose.
Pepper juice will waft up your nostrils and burn like all hell.

I am not really sure I have any nose hairs in my right nostril.

And you just have to ride out the pain.
It's not like you can pour water in your nostrils
and you can't use cream to make it feel better.

That's my nugget of wisdom for today!


  1. I too have learned the hard way to respect hot peppers :)

  2. I know someone at a banquet who popped into her mouth what ahe thought was a semi-hot pepper...her face turned red, eyes began pouring tears, she couldn't speak a word and took forever to catch her breath. I feel so sorry for your nose. Whip cream in a can might work next time, lol!

  3. Hi Ruth, I'm stopping by from the A to Z Challenge, nice to meet you! I, too, have learned the hard way not to even TOUCH those pesky things. OUCH. Hmm, just realized that touch is ouch with a T. Hmmm.

    Happy April! that rebel, Olivia

  4. Dang, don't know if I clicked follow before I closed out of your blog. If I didn't, please skip over to my place and let me know. I'll come back and do that! :)

  5. I cook with them, but I have to use gloves to chop them.
    Ouch with a T. I like that.
