Burrito-related chin injury

I ate a burrito for lunch, and the aluminum foil it was wrapped in scraped against my chin, causing some redness and irritation. The problem was that I felt if I unwrapped the foil more, the burrito might fall apart. Have you any suggestions for this conundrum, dear readers?

Fork and knife for the burrito.

And some salve for the chin.

Hold the burrito more vertical and eat from the top down, instead of horizontal like a sammy.

Wow, that link was extremely helpful, anonymous. I think it showed me my problem: instead of ripping the foil cleanly off the burrito, I was crumpling it down, creating a huge buildup of foil that protuded from the plane of the burrito and hit my chin.

Chin guards. But then, that's my answer to everything.

I can't say that's ever happened to me before, and I love me some a them burritos.

I'd agree with the tearing off the foil as you eat, and probably going more vertical strategies, both respectively, and as a coordinated effort to reduce burrito spaz attacks. Also, not jamming the thing all hell-bent for burrito and willy-nilly into your face helps, I would think.

Was this a Chipolte Burrito, or a 15th + K street Burrio Guy burrito?

It was a 15th and K Burrito Guy burrito. I know cuz I was there. Let me take this burrito string in another direction. That guy makes some damn good burritos, and he approaches the hot sauce like a scientist and a chef. But, in fact, he is a lawyer by trade. There is another burrito guy on around 17th and K, but he has almost no hot sauces. Having said that, he tosses cinnamon into the refried beans and they are mad good.

mmm
