Effects of scalding accident quickly resolved

While dining in a restaurant, I was startled when something heavy landed on my head and lodged between my neck and the high-backed chair. Immediately, I felt a burning sensation on my neck and back. As I screamed, my husband saw that a coffeepot had fallen on me from the staircase leading to the upper level. By the time he managed to grab it, it was empty and I was drenched in scalding coffee. 

Even though I could hear myself plead for help, at the same moment, I was conscious of a calm, reassuring thought: “If you refuse to participate in this scenario, you will suffer no ill effects.” I realized I could pray, right then and there.
