I almost had a fire in my apartment.
When I want something toasted, I use the oven., I used to have a toaster, but the perps screwed around with the electrical system. I put on the toaster one day and sparks came out of it. It was less than 3 months old. Since then, I don’t use the toaster, nor the microwave.
Anyway, as to the fire. I put some bread on a cookie sheet to toast. When the toast was almost done, I couldn’t find my oven mitten. It wasn’t where I always put it. So I grabbed a towel. Bad move. When I tried to get the cookie sheet out of the oven, it was too hot and I dropped the towel. The towel caught fire . I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off. Finally, I came to my senses and turned the oven off. and made sure the oven wasn’t letting in any air. It took from 10-13 minutes for the fire to go out.
I did find my oven mitten. Someone had hidden it in the first shelf of my kitchen cabinet, way in the back. I always keep the oven mitten on the counter where I can easily grab it.
I was lucky this time, but I’d like to get the idiot who hid my oven mitten. I know who did it. She’s always near my apartment, but I can’t prove it. She’s the lady who cleans the apartments when someone moves out. She seems to have nothing to do, but hang around where I live. She comes in when I’m gone and puts things in my food and steal things.
I wish I could find a camera to catch her in the act of stealing something from my apartment. I’d like to put her in jail where she belongs.
I know I should’ve had the oven mitten ready when I put the cookie sheet in the oven, but who thinks something won’t be nearby when we need it. I should know better by now. I should always expect the unexpected.
