Chartreuse, a brand

So, my friends and I fancied a bit of cropping, card making etc over a BBQ/ coffee date. I think there was even a bit of needle felting on this one occasion which of course always leads to at least minor injury! Anywhoo, after we crafted a bit, we decided to fire up the Q. We went outside onto the front porch, Judy turned the gas on and then of course we just went back inside, likely to get some kind of deliciousness. Well of course we got a bit side tracked possible over a bit of ric rac or glitter. About 10 minutes later we go out to light the BBQ. I don't know why, but I always seemed to be the one to do this. As I have lit a small table top BBQ many times before, I knew how to go about it. I had my friend Robyn lift the BBQ up so I could clearly see the igniter peep hole, so now my face is basically under a BBQ. I light the lighter.... Now keep in mind that the gas had been on for about 7-10 minutes and the lid was on. So a giant fire ball exploded in my face. I was so amazingly lucky, my hair, brows and lashes... not so much!! OH THE HORROR. The whole right side of my face had been singed. I ran upstairs and like the Joker demanded a mirror. It was bad, the only thing I could do was comb all the burnt hair out. It fell into the sink like dust or ash if you will.  It was very traumatizing. But HEY WHAT DID I EXPECT? We left the gas on forever, AND I STUCK MY HEAD UNDER IT AND PULLED THE TRIGGER! HA HA HA, we all calmed down, I actually got back on the horse and lit the BBQ CAREFULLY, and then we got back to our craftyness. My hair grew back, but I am forever scarred with stupidity.

Yikes!!!   When I read, "About 10 minutes later we go out to light the BBQ" I braced myself.  I knew it was going to be bad.  And it was, but you are incredibly lucky not to have been seriously injured or killed.  You actually volunteered to light the BBQ after that?  I think I would have been volunteering to order a pizza instead.   Tongue

Holy crap, I lost hair leaving the BBQ's gas on for 10 seconds! Thank heavens you didn't burn your FACE! Glad to know you got up the courage to light it again Cheesy

When it happened to me, I didn't know the clicker was broken (on my parent's BBQ), so had to go 10 feet to grab the lighter. I lost an eyebrow, a set of lashes, a hank of hair, and because I had GASPED!!!! as it happened, fire went up my nose. All I could smell was burnt hair for the next week, and felt like I constantly had boogers.

Same here. Of course, I'm the biggest chicken to walk the earth, so I would not even be BBQ-ing in the first place. Haha.

OMG......

Next time turn off the gas and wait a half hour or so for it to dissipate. You seriously could be in the hospital now with extremely bad burns. O_o
