I want to apologize for not responding to all the wonderful posts about all the great topics today.

I had a Thursday with one of my Gunthers.

There I was, minding my own business, goofing off in my office when one of my Gunthers asked me to help with a problem. After beating him for interrupting my nap time, I did grant him a boon and say that I would assist with whatever was bothering him.

He had been working on a unit that included a peristaltic pump propelling a highly caustic agent through some sort of technical tubing.

He had the tubing in backwards, and had created a balloon.

Now I like balloons. Helium-filled. They are great for teleconferences. Especially when I say in a squeaky voice, "Nothing wrong on my end, does my voice sound funny?"

Anyway, this "balloon" was filled with a highly caustic fluid.

Which popped right in front of me.

My face, neck, hands and arms received a wonderful spray.

I said, "Oh darn" and ran to an emergency shower and did that scene in Flashdance except I was a lot hotter.

The emergency room visit was also lovely. After cleaning me and slathering me with gunk, I said, "I haven't been this oiled since my college days. Don't judge me. I needed the money."

The nurse replied, "I remember. I want my dollar back".

After having Gunther drive me home, I was welcomed to my loving family with my wife saying I ruined my clothes and my sons saying that I was going as "Deadpool" for Comi-con.



Anyway, some pics.

Me before;


Me after;


So anyway, please forgive me if I'm a little slow on the replies.

If anyone can pull off a true to life Deadpool...it's you DB.


Sorry to hear and hope you do fully heal...physically anyway.




(You mean there is more than 1 Gunther!!!!????)

It's probably like The Cat in the Hat: Gunther 1 and Gunther 2.

Or he has Oompa Loompas, and he calls them Gunther so no one knows he works with weird little midget men who might just be strange subterranean slaves with Trumpian orange skin.


Anyhow, I'm sorry to hear about your lab accident. I hope you get over those caustic burns soon. Burns of any kind are bad news.

Husband drove a glass pipette tip through his thumb once and had to go get it dug out at the ER. I came home from practice and all I got was a nice note from the desk: Teikiatsu had lab accident. Is in hospital.

I'm sure your poor wife and kids got a better account of what actually happened.

No not really. Gunther(s) are behind the secret office door. It's part of a cloning project at DB's workplace. DB goes through 5 or 6 a year, so they had to clone Gunther to keep up with supply and demand.

The original Gunther is in that closet too, but no one knows which Gunther is Gunther Prime.

Here's exclusive footage.



Get better DB😊

Thank you all for the well wishes.

Alas, I am horribly disfigured now. I know I will be shunned by polite society.

Ignored by my peers.

Laughed at by street mines.

And will have to pay full price when I eat at Denny's.

I will survive.

I will survive.

As long as I know how to love, I know I will survive. . . .



(Actually just 1st and 2nd degree burns. I'm just a big sissy and drama queen)

Yeah.

But going as Deadpool or Harvey Dent is definitely a plus!

You could go as Jack Nicholson's Joker, too.

Remember the bad guy from Robocop that gets slimed with the toxic ooze that gets hit by the car later... That's what I think your trying to say but cant fully pull the trigger on that belief due to the "can't believe you could be uglier" thing?

Too bad you don't own a pig mask to cover your horribly disfigured face.

Hope you heal quickly DB! I could always have the pixies make you a special concoction of healing salve.
