Scarring my hands

I think that in the planning process, this most likely seemed awesome, but in reality, it was totally terrifying:

Let's see off the bride and groom with sparklers!  Yay!  But wait.  Should we give a large crowd of drunks fire and tell them to wave it at people?  In an enclosed space that is full of hairspray?  Perhaps not.  Molly and Danny actually looked quite panicked leaving the reception.

And I can't quite remember the details, but a sparkler got put out on my hand, and not only was it inappropriately painful, I now have oozing burn blisters on my right ring and middle fingers.  

This, combined with the fact that I have not managed to shower since Saturday before the wedding (and all the associated tomfoolery) makes me feel classy indeed.
