All I want for Christmas is... STITCHES?!?! Saturday night, I dropped a ceramic bowl while doing the dishes (my fave from our wedding casual pattern in 2002) and I tried to catch it as it shattered = sliced open clear across the top of my middle finger; waited with pressure for almost 2 hours before giving in for urgent care. Won't I look festive walking around giving everyone the bird for Christmas?!?! :-O :-P First stitches of *MY LIFE* (that I can remember!!!! & wisdom teeth don't count.)
Shots don't really bother me, so as soon as I got the two at the base of my finger to numb it for the sewing, I was ok. :-P
(YES!!!!! I totally DID keep that white sweater blood-free, and ALL of the nurses & doctors pointed out how amazing that was!!! :-D)
Adieu, former instrument of salad- & potato-holding, recent instrument of blood-letting...
I'm certain that this serious injury now absolves me from ALL DISH WASHING for the foreseeable future!!!!!
