Lesson #1 or Home teaching 101

If you don't know what something is, don't pick it up and start playing with it.

Lesson #2 If playing with said object don't point it in the direction of your own face.

It was a rather exciting night at our house last night. Our home teachers came over, a father and son team. and during the lesson Matt, the son, picked up my pepper spray which was on the table. I didn't notice he had it but Jim did and saw Matt unlock it. Just as he was saying, 'I wouldn't press that if I were you', Matt pressed the button!!!! It was just a split second but he pepper sprayed himself in the chin. Let me tell you what, that is some GOOD pepper spray!! Matt immediately felt it burning and the rest of us started coughing and went outdoors. We took Matt to the restroom to undress (he had gotten it on his shirt also) and to get the pepper spray washed off his face and chest. Jim opened all the windows because whenever we tried to come back into the house we would all start coughing again. Finally got the house aired and Matt somewhat cleaned up and out of pain when he picked up the washcloth he had used and wiped his face again!!!!!

So now Lesson #3. Do NOT use the same rag again, because you will reintroduce the pepper spray back onto your skin!!

Poor guy, I felt so bad for him, although I have to admit we all got a laugh out of it, even Matt despite his pain. After soaking his face in Dawn and water and splashing milk on his face, he got rid of the worst of the burn.

I wonder how many people can say they got pepper sprayed while home teaching? *giggle* Sorry Matt!!! I really do feel bad for you and hope you feel much better today!
