The Darlin' Bride wanted to feed what she thinks is my obsession with capsaicin, so she bought me a hot sauce kit for Christmas. It came from an outfit called Man Crate and the hot pastes included were Habanero, Trinidad Moruga Scorpion and Carolina Reaper. Starting me off on the high end, I guess...
Anyway, upon opening the box, everything seemed neatly, tightly and gently packed, lots of shock-absorbing paper between the kit components. But as I grabbed booklets and bottles and the hand-pull processor box out to inspect, I noticed my fingers getting wet and slippery. Closer inspection showed a reddish stain on parts of the paper, inside of the box itself, and on the bottles of pepper paste. Looking at the bottles, I found the culprit.
At least it wasn't the bottle itself broken, but now I'm afraid to touch myself....ANYWHERE.
Needless to say I'll get in touch with the comp'ny and have a replacement sent, but everything in the box, even the rubber gloves they included were stained and wet.
I will have to go take a leak soon. I've washed my hands a half dozen times with Goop and with Dawn dish soap. Am I doomed?
