    So, just to share my humiliation, I have to share with all of you the stupid thing I did today. It's my b-day tomorrow, so I was at my parents' house for the weekend. My dad got the stuff for s'mores, and since we didn't have a campfire, I was making them on the gas stove. I finished, pushed the marshmallow off the fork I was using to hold it over the fire....then licked the marshmallow off the fork. :eek: Needless to say I burnt my lips on the hot fork pretty badly and spent the rest of the day sucking on ice cubes. :( It even sizzled when it touched my lips :lol: How stupid!

    OUCH!!! When we don't have a campfire, we always just use the microwave, though the gas stove would give it that campfirey type taste.

    Oh no! I've never made s'mores or toasted marshmallows in my life.

    If you could rank on a scale of 1-10 the stupid things I've done, that would be about a 3.

    Guilty of that many years ago myself! Hope you heal quickly. I think burns are worse than cuts.

    Ouch!!! I saw on the marshmellow bag that you can make them in the microwave. They're great that way too! I did that with a few when we got home from camping..

    They are tasty and messy! :lol:

    Put a graham cracker on a plate, then top with a marshmellow, and a small piece of chocolate in the micro for a short time (forgot how many seconds) and then take it out with another cracker on top and enjoy the dessert!

    by "small piece of chocolate" you mean half of a chocolate bar, right? :) That's the way we make ours.

    I love making it in the microwave because I'm able to see the marshmallow puff up really big and then deflate. It's awesome!

    I could totally see myself making that same mistake!! OUCH!



    Ms. I, don't feel alone!!! I also never had a chance to eat s'mores. My parents never had them so they never introduced it to me and my brother. Then I became a vegan, so no marshmallows for me. MY geology teacher made s'mores when our geology class went camping a couple of months ago. I thought that was soooo sweet of him, but didn't have the heart to tell him that I couldn't eat it. I pretended to eat it and gave it to my friend to eat. Worked out fine. :D

    I think they are way too sweet. I just eat the chocolate, and am happy.

    Never try to file your nails with a Dremel.

    Keep your head away from the moving part of the weed eater.

    When riding a fixed gear bicycle, do not try to bunny hop over railroad tracks.

    When you get finished rebuilding a vintage mountain bike, don't be in such a hurry to ride it that you do so before you have installed the brakes.

    Just because it's a cop car, you're on a bike, and the speed limit is 25 mph, it's still not a good idea to try and draft behind him.

    Never use your own limb as a cat toy.

    Never get the day of her birthday wrong and then try to justify it by reminding her that you were early instead of late.

    When you dig a big hole in your backyard, remember that you dug the hole the next time you go walking around there.

    Always take the anarchy-themed punk rock posters down off of your barracks wall before the scheduled visit by the wing commander.

    You've obviously never had acrylic nails - my salon uses a Dremel to smooth out and shape nails! :blush:

    I was never really crazy about marshmallows, so that's probably why I was never dying to try them in this way! :D

    True, because I am generally not a marshmallow fan either.

    Iowa teacher--I've done the same thing. We use the shikabob skews to roast marshmellows on the gas stove--I didn't think about it the first time we did it, but I'll tell you what I won't do it again.

    **My stupid thing this week and it's only Monday--I applied for a district went to search there job board, there are positions, login to apply for the positions--the positions aren't listed. I'm really irritated at this point, I go and look again and sure enough there they are, so I start go over my app. I must have missed the question that said "classified (ie. aide, bus driver etc.)" or "professional-certified position". I felt so stupid!

    Twist on the original s'mores---

    We have a fire pit that we have going maybe 4 or 5 nights a week---
    well one night my SIL and I used a peanut butter cup instead of chocolate....

    Let me just say---

    Once you have the peanut butter cup s'more it is very hard to go back to the original!
