I’m not usually one to offer advice to other parents but this post falls under the Safety Around The House heading. If, like me, you sometimes develop a hankering for a late night bacon and egg sandwich it might be wise to take the precaution of checking that the toaster is free of any additional items before toasting.
There I was happily, and perhaps a little drunkenly, standing at the stove enjoying a light spattering of bacon fat when the kitchen/living room area filled with a toxic burning smell. If you ever drive on the Western Ring Road and pass that tannery near Deer Park you will know the smell. It was like that but much worse and with a plastic/metallic aftertaste. When I put the bread in the toaster I didn’t notice the purple texta and three Dora hair clips that were already there. Silly of me, I know.
So, in order to avoid my mistake and the need to buy a new toaster, please check before turning it on. It could be your iPhone thats in there.
