what's your worst kitchen injury?

I planned to post a recipe yesterday about a delicious summer pasta and some sweet iced tea, but my plans were derailed by a trip to the ER, second degree burns and 5 staples in my foot.

One of my friends asked me if I was cooking with grizzly bears.

I poured water that was too hot into glass pitcher and it exploded. Before I knew what had happened, I had fallen on the floor, my legs were burning and my foot was bleeding. Oops! Luckily, someone was in the house to bring me to the ER where they treated my burns and stapled my foot back together.

It could have been worse...at least the glass broke in large chunks that fell to the floor instead of exploding into my face. The burns on my legs are painful, but will heal and are of a nuisance now than they are painful.

I've had some clumsy kitchen injuries with minor burns and cuts, but this is definitely the most painful kitchen injury I've had.

How about you? What's your worst kitchen injury? Or am I the only one who manages to send herself to the ER while making pasta and iced tea?
