Oh wow, that's JUST like me! Shows how interested we are in cooking!
I try to touch things that are still hot, too. I also put leftover food in the microwave while it cools off (to keep the cat from getting it while we're eating) - then end up having to throw it away the next day....or stick my hot egg pan in the oven in the morning for the same reason - then start the oven for supper and melt the spatula
I've done that 2 days in a row! You'd think after suffering 3rd degree burns - FROM A STOVE - as a child, I'd have learned something. But I guess fog is stronger than memories.
I agree about the alarm, though I wouldn't know how to set a cell phone. If I do think that far ahead, it's to set the oven timer. Then, it's like, "What? What's that? Oh, yeah!"
