Since I’m caught up on commissions, I’ve finally had time to sit down and do some Lucidia stuff! So Welp. I was going to just draw Chili P, but well. Sage and Salt crashed the party! Sorry if they’re OOC. Hope ya like anyway, CQ :3
We got back from site earlier today, had lunch - and one of the diggers put a ton of ghost pepper sauce on his egg noodles. For those of you who don’t know, the ghost pepper is one of the hottest chili peppers in the world.
And he ate two forkfuls of it. The co-director had only put one or two drops of it on her food and she was staring at him in disbelief. He admitted that maybe he’d gone too far, and started eating yoghurt to compensate. Then he got up to pace a little, his breathing a little strained… and then out of nowhere he pukes. Well of course he was all apologies and started wiping up his vomit.
By this time I’d gotten curious, and went to dab a couple drops on my own food. A drop fell on my index finger, so I figured I’d just get that out of the way first.
Well, I’m not proud to admit it, but eventually I darted for the yoghurt too.
Mouth started to settle, everything was fine, and then I made the mistake of absentmindedly rubbing under my nose with the index finger I’d cleaned earlier of the sauce. Holy hell did my skin burn. Had to get an ice pack to relieve the pain. My hand is actually still burning a little. It’s been hours. Anyway, by that time the digger had hurried into HQ to vomit again into the sink.
Made it back to sleeping quarters, soothed skin under nose through the power of milk. Thought my hand had stopped burning earlier, but it’s started up again.
I don’t really have a good reason for sharing this story, other than the fact that it prompted me to rewatch some old Chili Klaus videos and some Hot Ones segments. Also, be careful about what you eat.
Watch as the Danish National Chamber Orchestra performs Tango Jalousie, after pausing to eat the world’s hottest chili peppers. Amazing what a performer can handle until they make it through their part in a performance. When it’s all over these poor musicians lose some of their composure.
