File this Under "I am a Dumb A**"

Do you know what this impression is? Don't choke or otherwise hurt yourself laughing at me.


I have been measuring. I have been cutting. I have been ironing. I have been sewing. I have been guilty of leaving the iron ON unattended in my kitchen.

I came back from sewing hems on Wyatt's project (my sewing machine is in my office in a separate building) and I smelled something funny in the house.

Yeah.

It's a perfect imprint of the iron on the linoleum tiles... Good thing I have an extra case of these tile beauties.

So which of my kids was responsible? I'll iron it out of them.

Disclaimer: No children were harmed in the iron mishap. Said IRON was sitting on the floor and was knocked over by someone (smallish child) sliding a chair across the kitchen. No toes or other body parts were burned as a result of this indecent.

OH. MY. GOODNESS!

Suzi said...

AAaaahhhhhhh! OMG! Good thing you didn't burn the house down. Hmmm, might have been a good thing...get those boys to build here, more reason NOT to build at the yard.

Laugh? Who, me? At you? Never!

oh my goodness, good think it was the floor that got it and not one of the kids!

Hon, just be glad nothing went up in flames and the little kiddos didn't get burned by that hot iron!!! But what a close call!!! Yikes!

Julia said...

Yes I know I should be happy for small things like my house not burning to the ground and all.

Luckily both my kids have respect to not touch the hot parts of the iron. They figured that out really quick. I think someone knocked it over and did not even notice...

My fault for leaving it on in the first place.

Oh no! That really stinks! Glad no one was burned. I recently burned the inside of my upper arm with my iron. I was reaching over it to grab something. Boy did that hurt!

jane augenstein said...

Oh, Julia! Thank goodness no kids were hurt or your house didn't go up in smoke! I have an iron that shuts off if knocked over or unattended for a certain amount of time, just cause I have forgotten it too, duh! Good thing you have extra tiles! Now you have to do floor repair!

Sara said...

Jeez! That would scare the crap out of me! Glad it was just a tile catastrophe. Easily fixed.

DayPhoto said...

Goodness! I'm glad you got back in in time.

I want those same tiles for my house!

I'm sure you told them to never touch a hot iron, right?
But never said anything about knocking one over while moving a chair...
Silly you!

Miss Dot said...

Oh my heavens that's like my worst nightmare! Not the smallish child part because, well, I don't have a smallish child (or any child, for that matter), but the "leaving something on unattended" part. Thank goodness the only casualties were those tiles!!

Grand Pooba said...

Holy crap that could have been bad! Not that it isn't bad, you know what I mean.

Rgoetsch said...

one more reason to not own an iron! I should get rid of mine pronto!
:)

Michele said...

LMBO!!!! Thank God for extra tiles!!!

Captain Dumbass said...

You could leave it as an example.

Rural Rambler said...

Hmm. Only further proof that s%*t do happen! Aren't replaceable tiles the bestest?

MObugs said...

I thought I was the only one who did DumbA** stuff like this...LOL. There is a reason my husband says I am an accident waiting to happen...

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

At least they know it's hot, right? Smart kids, those of yours. (of course it's not just because they have to be smart to survive. Ha!).

Sharkbytes said...

Wow- Interesting texture, but it does sort of contrast with the rest of it. Glad you didn't burn the place down.... really.

Aunt Spicy said...

Cause known of us have ever done anything at all LIKE that! But I cant wait to see your sewing projects!

Sharkbytes said...

Julia- I was trying to get around to my buddies to say Merry Christmas, but I missed a few on time. Hope you had a great one!

Lisa said...

I can't say a word. I'm the one that just accidentally baked Rice Krispie treats...

I did the same thing but on curtains, apparently curtains from walmart are plastic and the second I put the iron on them they melted onto my iron. But I can throw curtains away, but not tile. Throw a rug over it and no one will know
