Next time, Chad, to make cleaning up even better, add a drop or two of liquid dish detergent. You'll be even happier. Glad you are free of stitches.

Ouch, I've been there, and I've done cut myself with a simple hotel pan. I'm not happy when the cooks bring their cutting boards with the knife on it pointing in my direction, I wouldn't want be there if they tripped & fell.

Ouch! It had to be the thumb of all things. Sorry.
Now you know what the rest of the animal kingdom is without one (2). No picnic.

Chad, I too have learned how to properly handle a food processor blade after cutting my finger a few years ago. Never leave it where it can be accidently bumped, like next to the sink faucet. I learned my lesson after to an trip to the ER and 7 stitches later. I am glad that your thumb is better.
