I left the iron on

I came home from work tonight at about 2 a.m. and as I walked past my spare bedroom/office/room where everything random is put I saw a strange orange blinking light.

I live alone so I couldn't imagine what in the hell it was.

I walked into the room and I just about had a heart attack.  It was my iron!

I ironed a shirt to wear today and I had forgotten to turn off and unplug the iron.  Its the first time I've ever done that in my entire life.

I had a sense of relief when I realized that I had purchased an iron years ago (I want to say it was 2002 but I can't recall for sure, I've had the thing for quite a while) that has an automatic shutoff in case its left on.

I will bet I never do that again.  Unless this is the first sign of Alzheimer's!
