I was at work a couple of weeks ago, and I accidentally burned myself without even realizing it. It didn’t hurt at all, because that was one of my main methods of SIing when I first started. Even though I hadn’t done it in years, I hadn’t even noticed that I had done it until one of the girls that I work with was like, “Oh my God! Are you okay?”
I just had to pretend like I was being really tough, and I smiled it off like it was nothing.
