Teaching Moments Are EVERYWHERE, People.

Zack will be learning about all the 50 states this year.
I got a lovely grease burn on my arm yesterday while cooking dinner. It really hurt. A lot. Check it out...


Which state do you think it most resembles?
I'm thinking either Illinois, Indiana or a backwards Florida.

We take the teaching moments where we can get them, folks. Don't judge me.

Ouchy! I hope your "teaching moment" gets better soon! Those are NOT fun! I hope what you were making turned out delicious! My vote - Illinois.

I would say Florida.

My question is what did you learn? If your like me probably nothing. I have decided people that don't burn themselves don't cook as often as I do. I am far to comfortable in the kitchen and I have the marks to prove it. After each burn I tell myself..."That'll teach me." then I get another burn or cut...

Allow me to have a teaching moment. Emergency essentials sells a product called "burnfree pain relieving gel". It is really great! Travis got a burn, put that on and said the pain was gone instantly. They sell a bunch of other really great emergency items too. My vote, a cross between Indiana and Illinois.

Tristyn and Tiff J are here and Tristyn thought New Jersey and I thought Indiana before I read your guess. Hope it heals into something really small like Maine though. =-)

I have some medicine for burns. From Dr Jones and it works like you'll never believe. Called Silvdine or something. Really. It's a cream you rub into your skin and it has silver molecules that heal. I'll have your home teacher bring it over. I'm flying far, far, away tomorrow.
