the roof was definitely on fire.
thankfully i’m not dead.
smh.
so about last night

i was trying to knock out 3 entries,
along with thursday’s “no more mr nice guy” chapter.
problem was?
i was tired as fawk.
i was also hungry as fawk since i didn’t eat since lunch.
i didn’t feel like cooking,
so i put on a hungry man tv dinner.
i usually put them in the oven because the microwave is a no go.

cool.

i go sit
okay i laid
…on the couch and i did this number:

“let me close my eyes for 15 minutes…”

200-55yeah.
you can already tell where this is going.
so i set my timer and fell asleep.

i woke up to the sound of my smoke detector going on.
it was 3 o’clock in the morning.
my living room was smoky as fawk.
my timer never went off or i may have slept through it.
ill take the latter for 100.
either way…
i jumped THE FUCK UP,
ran into the kitchen like road runner,
and when i opened the oven…

giphydisaster.
absolute disaster.

i didn’t get to go back to sleep either.
i had to air out the entire crib.
my crib still smells like smoke.
my day was absolute hell on top of it.
i was tired,
moody,
and couldn’t take a full lunch because everyone decided to call out.

tumblr_mk4p1lvnc71rts1j7o1_400yeah.
this mercury retrograde is already off to a wonderful start.
on lighter news…

I’m not dead.

  1. Lol what kind of hungry man dinner was it. I put the boneless chicken in the oven for 40 mins and take it out and add some aged cheddar to the mashed potatoes. #goodeatingonabudget lol

  2. J, you are making me laugh too much. You need to stop. I’m glad you are okay and didn’t lose your apartment *knock on wood* but next time don’t do that shit again. Never sleep when you are cooking o have something in the oven.

  3. I’m glad that you’re ok and thank God that your smoke detectors work. I’m with Lindo: don’t do that shit again. If you that tired then the microwave is the best option. Cause we all know “let me close my eyes for ___ minutes” is just a fantasy. But on the real I’m glad nothing too damaging happened to you or your place.

  4. It’s crazy. The number one cause of house fires is the stove or oven being left on. God was with you. Invest in a toaster oven with a timer.
