any brownie points I get for eating spicy foods would be quickly taken away 
if I were to be seen using gloves.

Mistakes, just a few.  Rubbing an eye, licking a finger, going to the 
bathroom without thinking ( soap and water really don't remove all the 
oils).  And yogurt wasn't an option - ouch .

 I've heard tales of people who are unfortunate enough to develop welts or
skin rashes due to coming into contact with some peppers.
My question is, how many of you list members routinely use gloves when
handling peppers?  What happens if you don't?
