Who knew that a little yellow flier tucked away in a 10 year old girls schoolbag could make such a wonderful birthday present?

    To top it off, last night, knowing my affinity for cooking and burning myself, the wee one also presented me an "Ov Glove". According to their website, this handy invention will be:

    "The glove that makes you feel like a superhero. Withstands temperatures up to 480 degrees, and does not catch fire or melt! Handle scorching light bulbs, baking pans, wood-burning stoves, and more. Fits either hand."

    I've got news for the fine folks at "Ov Glove", while I appreciate their product (it really works!), I already felt like a superhero, at least to one person in particular.
