Well my gal-pals in The Eclectic Artisans group convinced me to blog about my 'mishap' to the world ..... this is what I call "my idiotisms" (is that a word?) ......and yes, we all have them on occasion...mine just seem to be more often than others.
My Tuesday started out just like any other day...boring yet chaotic.....you see I gave my husband a brand new set of kitchen knives for his birthday last week and I have been dying to try them out.......well, in a nutshell this is how I posted to my gal-pals what happened to me:
Oh dear god....the dang finger finally stopped bleeding. This is what happened: saw leftover meat in frig, thought of dog instead of trashcan, spied new knives, got cocky and thought..kewl..I'm a real chef, cut finger, pain, cried, cursed, bandaged with wads of papertowels and sports wrap tape, debate doc or no doc, nawwwwww, said if after my horse chores the blood didn't seep thru bandage...I'm good. Saw no blood thru bandage, chores VERY hard with 1 friggin hand, went to work, pain, throb, miserable, check on finger 6 hrs later, took massive bandage off........RE-RIPPED OPEN the wound!!!! WAAAAAA, blood, pain, cried, cursed, debate doc or no doc, ran finger under cold water for 20 mins and almost passed out lightheaded, finger went numb from cold, held over head for 1 hr, dried blood all over finger but stopped, didn't want to put another bandage on, soooo I left it all ugly with blood, had to pickup daughter and take to Dicks for new track shoes, went with bloody finger and all.....got lots of stares! Who cares, it stopped bleeding! Lady comes over to me and says in store, "would you like a bandaid?", I chuckled and said "oh no thank you, they only make it worse".....strange look from lady shaking head as she is walking away... :0 , got cleats, went home and cleaned up finger gingerly, announced to hubby (holding up finger) that I am not a chef and would need him to cook all dinners from now on !!!!!!
You guessed it.....I almost whacked my finger off!! See picture of "REAL CHEF" above and how I was suppose to TUCK my fingertips over and down. Hmmmmm, you know next time I try out those fancy shmancy (and SHARP) knives ......fingers down baby!
