Third Degree Burn

Last year at about this time I burned the top of my foot.  It was very painful and looked really bad,  and so I went to the dermatologist.

He examined the wound and asked me how it had happened.  For sosme reason I was too embarrassed to tell the whole truth,  and so I was rather vague.

”Oh,  it was just a kitchen accident.”,   I said.

”Well”,   he said, “whatever you did,  you certainly got yourself a nice little third degree burn.”

”Oh dear,  what will you do to me ?”,    I asked  fearing a painful skin debreeding procedure.

”I will tell you that the next time you’re frying latkes,  you should wear your shoes.”,   he said.

How did he know?
