Stomach Burn

I know what you all are thinking. What is a stomach burn and how the heck can that happen? Well, you have to be pretty careless to burn your stomach, but I did it! I was making pizza one random Friday night, and I pulled the pizza out of the oven and set it on the stove for awhile. Then I went to cut it with the pizza cutter and I was holding the pan with a potholder in my other hand. Well, the pan was moving around a little bit, so I slid the pan towards me and braced it in between my stomach and my potholder-covered hand so I could cut with the other hand. I realized within half a second that the pan was still around 400 degrees F, but it was too late…I burned a stripe across my stomach. (By the way, this was weeks ago and I’ve recovered fully since then.)

Pizza is notorious for burns!! Gotta admit, this must be a first though.
