I did not foolishly leave the kitchen to go change out laundry loads while preparing to make popcorn and come back to too hot oil. I did not take the lid off the pan, giving the hot oil oxygen and it did not POOOF into flames. I did not do that! Not me!
I did not calmly think the situation over, reach for the fire extinguisher, and forget to move my homemade granola, still in the pan, to a safe distance. Not me. It did not get spray on it. I did not leave it sitting on the counter for days because I didn't have the heart to throw my homemade goods away. I did not make my husband do it for me.
I did not spend considerable time cleaning and spraying and scrubbing my burnt pan when my husband told me to just go buy a new one. I did not waste my time on a hopeless pan. Not me!
I did not just post this for my landlady to see. Not me!
(Note to Liz, our landlady: No worries. No damage. Just to my pan. Thanks for the new fire extinguisher. It worked like a charm.)
