The OAR Annual Conference, held every October, is called “REIgnite” and the purpose is to fire up our members to reignite their career. This year it will be held October 3-5, 2017 in Stillwater, Oklahoma and I am really looking forward to this!
Apparently I had “REignite” on the brain.
A few weeks ago, I burned my arm pretty bad. My unusually absent-minded self apparently forgot that I had already lit the gas smoker (that I was placing a big juicy pork tenderloin into to smoke itself low and slow throughout the day). The flame was out and I hit the ignite button thinking I had forgot to light it. But I hadn’t forgot to turn the smoker on, the flame just went out. Unfortunately, the gas had continued to build up and there was a big explosion that knocked me on to the ground, burned my sweatshirt off my arm and scared the living daylights out of me.
Despite the 2nd degree burns on my arm, I am going to be just fine. Like I’ve said many times before… more than just ok. *pun intended*
