There's always going to be days that someone forgets the basic rule of physics when heating up things in the microwave. Never keep a container tightly closed. I just had to make that mistake when I was in the kitchen alone late night some time ago. 30 seconds later after putting a closed and upside down bottle with the last of maple syrup, there's a puddle underneath. All I had to do was open it slightly over the pancakes.
*POP!* Impressive mess.
I just had on shorts and tshirt. I got it all over that plus my legs, the counter, and the floor.
Fortunately, it was an easy 5-minute cleanup and one minute change.
