Warning: Sticking this hot iron in your eye will burn your eye


Yeah, so, I straighten my hair every morning, because I think sticking a hot iron to your head is a great way to wake up. It’s better than coffee.

I was straightening my hair this morning when I saw this:

This tag can mean one of two things:

1. I shouldn’t make eye contact with the straightener. Understandable. If you make eye contact with it, the straightener thinks you are trying to be dominate and will attack. I’m sure you’ve seen the brawls on FOX’s “When Haircare Tools Attack.” I watched it once.  I wish I could unsee it … along with “The Glutton Bowl” and a lot of other things I’ve seen on FOX.

2. People are burning their eyeballs with their hair straighteners. Really? People are sticking a hot flatiron in their eye? Are they trying to straighten their eyelashes and/or eyebrows? How unruly are their eyelashes? I’m sure we can all agree that the people who think putting a burning hot iron near their eyes are not going to be helped by this little warning tag on the cord.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. This reminds me of something from, I think, one of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books where someone gave up on the human race when they saw instructions on how to light a match on the side of a matchbox.

  2. My straightener has a warning to not use it while sleeping.

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
