[nfbwatlk] Turning Up the Heat

Very good point, Ben!  Best to always look before turning on 
heat.  Case in point, Craig and I were living in Vancouver and I 
was making dinner one night while Craig was at work.  Whatever I 
was making needed to bake in the oven.  It never occurred to me 
to look in the oven for pans that would be stored there-but Craig 
had stored some pans in the oven.  I turned the appliance on to 
preheat, and soon began to smell horrible smells and to hear 
crackling sounds from the oven.  Totally panicking, I called 911.  
I had recently left my employment at IRS and there we were all 
basically "visually impaired" whether we had any vision or not.  
So I told the lady that I was visually impaired.  She asked me 
what color the smoke was that was coming from the oven.  In total 
frustration I said, "I'm BLIND, dammit!  She got it.  So to this 
day, Craig teases me about inviting the fire fighters over for 
dinner.  Lol.  My fault for not looking in the oven-however he 
could also have told me that he was putting some extra pans in 
the oven for storage.  Anyway, I think we ended up going out for 
dinner that night.  Lol.    Peace,    Debby
