It has been awhile, but I have grated my fingers too. I'm sure we all have cut ourselves at least once or twice on a knife or something else sharp in the kitchen. I did something really stupid last week. My pans have handles that don't get hot on the stove. However, I forgot that this pan had just come out of the oven, and I grabbed the handle! OUCH!!! It's a good thing I don't cuss, or my husband would have heard an earful! I just yelled, "Oh shoot, oh shoot, oh shoot!!!" and stuck my hand under the cold water. Fortunately I didn't complete the grab, and I got it under water quick enough that it didn't blister.

I have injured myself lots of times. It would take a couple of years for me to name them all! :oops:

I once put a pan of garlic bread on the top rack to be broiled and accidentally branded my right forearm on the heating element! OW! :oops:

I was chopping parsley and actually sliced my nail in half on the way down with the knife - talk about a thin nail after that!!!!!!!!!

I was pulling a flat pan of scallops off the top of an oven where they were being kept warm (when working in a restaurant) and due to my shortness (Lifter's wife can relate ) I tilted the pan slightly and scallop juice collected in between my knuckles - blistered up about the size of a walnut - hurt like heck!!!!!

have put lots of v shaped cuts in my knuckles and fingernails over the years chopping birds' veggies half asleep in the morning.

also, have matching burn marks on my forearms from removing pans from lower racks of the oven. stuck one arm in and burned a line in my forearm on the upper rack, so i stuck the other arm in. ouch!
