Injured In The Line Of Duty

My girls beg for pop tarts. I never buy them--which is quite strange, because I embrace all foods that are bad for you. But, I recently discovered organic, whole wheat pop tarts at Costco. Despite the amount of sugar I eat, I am actually a huge 'label reader' and I cook quite healthy (desserts don't count). But, my kids have proclaimed that these pop tarts are disgusting...

This morning, I decided to toast the organic, whole wheat pop tarts and prove to these girls that they are tasty. As I pulled the tart from the toaster, it landed on my hand, the frosting side burning a hole through my thumb and all the way to China.

Do you realize how valuable your thumb is? One whole digit can mean so much! When I tried to pee, I couldn't pull my pants back up, or button them for that matter. I thought about just waiting there until Todd got home, but it was only 8:30 am.....I shimmied them up. I'm thinking about filing for Workers Compensation. After all, I was injured on the job.

From now on, I'm sticking with my original plan--no more pop tarts. They're hazardous to your health.
