I'm sorry it happened, and I wouldn't have posted if I had read your 'no lectures' post first.
However, while typing my response, I realized I had left my hamburger on the stove too long. My hint was the fire alarm. It was screaming, "Man-cook! Man-cook! Man-cook!
Happily, after the alarm settled and the smoke cleared, I realized it was still edible. Charcoal is good for digestion. So I started eating, finished my post, and hit post reply. But all that took some time...so I didn't see the 'no lecture' until it was too late.
