Funny story Qarl. I could see that scene in a movie.
I'm a little surprised that you didn't feel the extreme heat on your face before the hair singed, but I guess it is all in the lean. Maybe Melissa Myers was wrong, people shouldn't "lean in" - especially women with long hair. (Bad joke?
I get that this could be an issue, but we'll have to see if others experience it as well. From the first day that I fired up the BS, I've never been tempted to get close - but if you didn't notice, maybe I wouldn't either.
Thanks for sharing
