AGAIN with This

I'm just going to have to quit buying the damn things until I learn how to handle them safely.

Latex gloves are a must! At the minimum, put the hand holding the pepper in a baggie -- that's what I do in a pinch. Otherwise I'd have burned my eyeballs out by now!

You forgot the sour cream, didn't you?

Damnit, Jim, it's a vulva, not an enchilada!

(Pond's cold cream, actually.)

Hey, you might just want to go straight to vinyl or other non-latex gloves. I've got the sensitivity or allergy or whatnot. At first, it just feels vaguely creepy or uncomfortable, but the longer I wear latex, I just go totally buggy. And having the dentist with latex gloves in my mouth is INTOLERABLE.
