I learned something today, that I hope I can carry with me into a better future. Maybe someone out there can benefit from this, too. Which is why I'm putting it out there for all the world to see...so that you, too, may learn from my valuable experience.
I learned that, if you put a dish of butter in the oven to melt (trying to save on dishes, and the oven's on to pre-heat anyway) and you leave a fork in the dish...no matter how careful you are to remember to use pot holders when removing said dish from said oven...said fork will Still Be Hot.
I'm just sayin'.
