Finger Foray

23 Feb

I’d like to kick off this post with a “Thank You” for all the thoughts and prayers sent my way after the recent death of my Uncle & Grandfather.  I certainly appreciate it.

I have always been a tad clumsy.  I blame it on a narrow peripheral field of vision and not a lack of forethought.  Ahem.  Thus it came as no surprise when, over the past week, my fingers fell victim to this “problem” that I have. 

My right index finger was burned after a quick trip into a 425 degree oven…who knew, right?  I’m one of those people who reach into ovens without wearing an oven mit.  For some reason, my brain doesn’t make the leap for “hot” to “protect yourself!”

Then, a few days later, my left index finger was mowed down in a shaving accident.  Have you ever done that, ladies?  You’ll be shaving along, thinking about the errands of the day, and, before you know it, you shave off part of your finger nail.  No?  Well, I do it all the time.  There’s a special little dance I do when it happens.  It involves holding the offended finger, dancing around like I’m on hot coals and a liberal amount of barely intelligible curse words.  It is awesome…except for the shaved finger part.

Did I mention that I’ve shut my ear in a door before?

    I have totally done that multiple times. I am a big wimp and normally get very upset. I sympathize with the string of muted curse words. I am a master at those. :)

    *laugh* I’ve been wondering when someone would notice that.

    I knew you would be the first one to spot it. :)

    Oh, and I shave my nails off all the time lol You haven’t done a good shave job on your leg unless at least one finger is wrapped up in a band-aid!

    I have definitely shaved my finger before. It hurts like crap. And I felt so stupid doing it. I am glad I’m not the only one! :)
