Hair removed by sausages

Singed eyebrows and hair. mine was far worse than this. Alas I didn't have a camera nearby at the time.

This is a true story, I swear

 After reading about how men hate shaving and different things to do with hair and hair removal, I thought it might be an idea to share my story of what happened to me.  If you are squeamish or frighten easily, then read no further.  What happened to me, I wouldn't want to wish on my worst enemy.  The details of wish will appear below, and might cause many to have sleepless nights as they subconsciously relive my pain and humiliation.  Okay, it wasn't painful, just very humiliating.

This story does not take place in a beauty salon, or any other establishment you usually connect with hair removal.  This story, this very real story, took place in my kitchen.  Yes you are amazed I know.  No, my ex-husband did not pluck my eyebrows using the tongs.  What happened, was far, far worse.

As some of you might be aware, I have a penchant for making home-made sausages.  I make many different varieties, my favourite of which is Boerewors, a traditional South African sausage with a strong underlying taste of roasted coriander.  But I digress.  On this fine day, I was cooking some shop-bought Boerewors under the grill.  You put the grill on high, and the sausages close to the grill and turn them when they start to get brown.  You never, never prick a sausage like I have seem some dimwits do at barbecues.  Only right royal pricks do that.  That releases the fat and causes you to end up having a very dry sausage instead of a juicy one.  Dry sausages look like dried dog turds and probably taste just as bad.  The sausage has to be cooked on the outside, but retain the meat juices.  You know a sausage is good when the juice dribbles down your chin.

On this warm summer's evening, I was bending down with my butt in the air, the oven door open, and carefully using a fork to turn over the sausages.  My ex-husband stealthily crept up behind me, and lifted up my skirt and pinched me on my bum.  This caused a chain of reactions which was more frightening that the Butterfly Effect.  I'm not sure if it was the shock of not being alone in the kitchen, or my skirt being lifted up or somebody pinching me on the bum, but I accidentally stabbed a sausage that I was carefully rolling over with the fork, releasing a veritable geyser of fatty juices which flew upwards at a rate of knots and hit the grill.  The heat from the grill immediately ignited and sent a huge whoosh of flames out the oven door, as hot air rises.

My face was in the direct path of the flames.  Luckily, my face did not get burnt and all I got from the experience with regards my face was a very ruddy complexion, as if I had been sunbathing without suncream for 16 hours solid.  However, my lovely Cindy Crawford/Margot Hemingway bushy eyebrows singed completely and frizzled to a foul-smelling mass above my eyes.  My eyelashes suffered a similar fate, as did the hair on the top of my head.  The acrid smell of burning hair permeated from the walls and floorboards.

My ex-husband did not apologise for creeping up behind me, lifting my skirt, pinching my bum and unleashing this full chain of disaterous events.  With due respect, I think he might have had the original intention to give me a hug and say sorry, as he did take a step towards me with his arms open.  However, as I turned around with a menacing snarl on my face, still bent over double with a crook in my back, he took one look at me and burst into hysterical laughter.  I quickly forgot my anger as humiliation rose to the fore and I ran screaming into the bathroom and locked the door.  looking at myself in the mirror, I couldn't help but notice that the top of my previously straight hair was all frizzy.  My eyebrows were frizzy and my eyelashes dropped off as i rubbed my eyes.

I did look a sight, but was too upset and humiliated to laugh.  I decided to try and brush the frizz out of my hair.  However, anybody with frizz caused by a burn will know, that once exposed to heat, hair becomes very fragile.  Two strokes of the brush and my frizzed hair dropped into the wash basin.  I now had a reverse mohawk.  Rubbing my eyebrows caused most of the hairs on them to join my mohawk in the wash basin.  Without eyebrows, I closely resembled an alien from one of those Star wars movies.

Can you wonder why I got divorced.  I did forgive him over time.  When my hair grew back.  Moral of the story is, don't get too close to a flame and don't let your partner get frisky when cooking.

Oh my gosh, Cindy! I'm amazed you weren't burned! What a story! I used to singe my eyebrows with a Zippo in the wind when I was still smoking. It never did hurt but the smell... the SMELL! Ugh!


LAmatadora 7 years ago

omg...as freakishly as that was I am so sorry you had to deal with that. I once caught my hair on fire at work when some co-workers brought me a cake with candles for my birthday. It was the kind u can't blow out and I leaned over to blow ( thinking I had blew it out) and my long hair caught on fire. It stunk like hell in the office!!!!

Its no fun!!!

Sage advice! Also, don't balance a cup on your leg (sitting down) and try to pour boiling water into it with the kettle still plugged in and the cord not quite long enough. Boiling water lifts the skin (apparently, so I've been told -- I would never do anything that stupid; oh no, not me).

That was a very original way to have your eyebrows done LOL, sorry but I couldn't stop laughing. It reminded me a day my mom had a strange experience in the kitchen... somehow it was her bottom that got stuck in the open oven, we were never told the whole story of what happened that day... I think you have enlighten me now :)

I am laughing so hard, your story reminds me of my brother trying to start a vehicle by dumping gas in the carburetor while I cranked the engine... Needless to say, he got a hair cut that day, before going to town.

Gosh cindy, good thing it came only to this and nothing else! you would've been hurt!!! Surprising someone is a bad idea bcz some people can't handle it... Glad you're alife :)


nazishnasim 7 years ago

Cindy,

Certainly a very different side to hair removal. But did you know that people in some parts of Asia actually use fire (from a certain distance) to burn the hair on their arms and legs?

Any way back to the point, with all due respect your ex-husband did a very childish thing, I mean you could have stumbled and (God forbid) fell upon the fire. Thank God you are well and alive among us.

Long Live Cindy! :).

cindyvine 7 years ago from Kyiv, Ukraine Author

Ivorwen, have to say that dumping gas in the carburetor while someone cranks the engine is not particularly bright either.

Shamel, yes my ex had this thing about surprising me. Once I was getting milk out of the fridge and when I turned around he was there behind me and I got such a fright I split the milk everywhere.

Nazishnasim, takes more than a childish ex-husband to kill me lol

Frieda, yeah had to admit this week's hubmob topic had me stumped. I thought who the hell would want to read about shaving your pubic hair, then I remembered this incident and thought, yeah well, it did remove my hair.

TP, the smell of burning hair makes this not a wise choice for hair removal. I agree.

Hawke, yeah wasn't funny at the time, I remember being so angry, especially when I had to get my hair cut really short lesbian-style afterwards. But now, it is rather hilarious.

Captain Badheart, lurve yers aswell

Although it was thoughtless for your ex to sneak up behind you when you were working with fire, you were able to survive and I'm happy about that.

At age 18, a gas oven had a minor explosion when I lit it. Before the hair was singed off the right side of my face that day, I did not actually realize that my face featured tiny, fine hair - just never noticed. With a short hairdo at the time, I lost 1/8" fringe of hair along the right side from top of head to chin as well. Smelled odd. That's when I started using fireplace matches (long) on the oven - and grills - and candles!

cindyvine 7 years ago from Kyiv, Ukraine Author

Yeah Whikat, had to spice up a dry topic lol


cindyvine profile image

cindyvine 7 years ago from Kyiv, Ukraine Author

Hi Patty, so you can empathise with my experience! his was an electric oven, not a gas one, just the fat that hit the top grill that caught fire

cindyvine 7 years ago from Kyiv, Ukraine Author

lol Thanks Frieda. I did have another accidental hair removal moment, when I hit a cow on the freeway and the damn thing landed on the roof and peeled the roof back. Luckily, my head was thrown back on impact and as the roof came down and peeled back it took off the skin off my nose and scraped the hair off the top of my head. A narrow escape from potential decapitation I think!

AH HA! A new product is born "Sausage Away" It could go over pretty well, but the disclaimer portion of the instructions would take awhile for the customer to read.

Seriously, glad you're OK. This story reminds me why I don't use a gas grill anymore...., but that's a story for another hub, er I mean day.

blondepoet 7 years ago from australia

Hahaha oh Cindy what a experience,thank God it was just those bits that got burnt.Crikeys you are so lucky. Boy it made me laugh though,for one I know now without doubt you have a huge sausage fetish, look at the ones on the barby, gee Cindy they are the most jumungus things I have ever seen. Almost like snakes.I touch wood have never set fire to my face, apart from a few times my hair caught on fire but my hair was so long it was just at the back so that was ok. However as you probably read I did burn the kitchen down once by mistake, I was only renting it, the buggers took 6 months to come and give me a new one.Well done Sin, you told that one beautifully.

Yea when our skirts are lifted up like that so suddenly anything can happen.Happens to me all the time LMAO.

Thanks for the sausage warning! I'd also warn others of turning on the gas stove in preparation of re-lighting the pilot light that went out and waiting too long. When I dropped the match in, it blew the oven door off, the pictures on the wall off, eliminated my eyebrows and eyelasses. Kept my hair. That was years ago, and to this day if I open the oven door - the dog runs and hides behind my husband.

This is great stuff. Now you can write a hub explaining how you got to the front page of Google using the search terms "hair removed by sausages". Loved it.

Well Wannabwestern, guess not many people write articles called hair removed by sausages!

Hilarious although I am glad you didn't suffer permanent damage. (pride doesn't count)I wish I had a dollar for every time I have opened the oven and the sudden rush of heat melts my mascara and fused my eyelashes together. I never learn.

Certainly grounds for a divorce..., and one of the most interesting and humorously told stories I've heard in a while.

I frightened my girl in the kitchen once while she was holding a sharp knife. Some lessons only need to be learned once.

Great Hub

That was really fun to read but realizing the conditions, it is good that the result was not that serious... just a divorce from insensitive mischievous husband.
