Karma is a powdery stinging bitch!

I got exactly what I deserved!

Tonight, my man was running late, postponing dinner by more than 2 hours. On my new schedule, I eat every 3 hours! So... I was staaarving. I was feeling hungry, anxious, and bored.. so I opened the cabinet and took out the bag of jalapeno chips!

"Just three little chippies" I say. To the dog. Who could care less. Unless I drop one of those chippies, THEN she's interested.

First chip....I lift it to my anticipating mouth...

I kronsch down on it and as soon as I do... POOF! A ERUPTION of flavor powder explodes off the chip and INTO MY EYE.

No joke. Burning jalapeno pepper powder into my peeper.

Omg. it BURNED. It was embedding itself into my contact, I immediately try to take out my contact...
WITH MY FINGER THAT IS COVERED IN FLAVOR POWDER FROM THE CHIP.

Geeeenius.

Long story short - My eyeball is fine. And so is my calorie count for the day... thanks to an angry chip who obviously wanted to keep me on my diet, by any and all means necessary!

OH my gosh! That must have been so painful, although, I kinda wish that when I was about to go over calorie that something would happen to discourage me (although, I'm not really a fan of pain....so maybe not that!)

Ouch! I once had a run-in with jalapenos and it wasn't pretty. At all.
