Before I begin let me apologize for my poor typing .. not even going to try and fix the mistakes .. you will understand shoertly.

My petty vent is aboiut my lack of attention to forseeing the future outcome of a really stupid move.

6 days ago I was makinf Spaich Smoked Paprika Chickrn for dinner. It came tiime to add the smoked paprika. I had a brand new container. Of course it would not open. Struggled a bit then the lid came off - Cool ! Then pulled of safety wseal and put lid back on. Attempted to oprn the shake/pour lids on top and it was a no go. Food is furiously cooking as I am trying to get the stupid container open. Now I can't get the lid unsxcrewed because I cross threaded it I see a paring knife anf with my infinite wisdom todsed out the window I pried that sucker open with ther tip of the knife. Immdiately after the lid popped open the knife continued on to the tip of my finger Blood everywhere. Called DH for help - he almost faints because of the blood but eventually gets me 3 bandaids. Got the bandaids on tight, put on plastic glove and got back to cooking dinner. Once dinner was done and everything cleaned up, I took off bandaid .. now I want to faint LOL Crap ... finger did not used to look like this So 4 stitches later I'm angry at how stupid I am at times when I am in a hurry. I have a splint on it to help the pain of me bumpiong my finger on stuff .. any idea how many times a day your finger bumps things .. the answer is a LOT LOL So there is my petty vrent for the day whixh should hold me until well passed then end of the year.

Mrs. LMB, so sorry you had that happen. Especially just before the holidays. Hope all heals quickly. Next time give DH the bottle and the paring knife...

I certainly can understand the typing problems.

Remember those cans that used to come with their own key, like the Spam cans, coffee cans, etc.? Well I was opening one and the dang thing sprang back on me and open the whole length of my ring finger on my right hand. After receiving several stitches, I called myself several names for being so stupid. Names that were not very nice. Names that I do not wish to repeat here. So you have my complete sympathy. You have a perfect excuse to take a few days off. And stay away from the knives please.

(((Hugs))) MrsLMB. I hope that heals really quickly.

Why yes, I do have an idea of how often one bangs a finger. I did a stupid with a chef's knife about 2 and half years ago and nearly cut off the end of my index finger.

If'n yer gonna play wit da sharp knives, yer gonna git cut, maybe sooner, maybe later. But yer gonna get cut.

I hope it heals quickly for you. I think it's safe to say that those who work with sharp tools, get cut. I also think it's safe to say that you're not alone. I now I've done it, and with everything from a push-mechanical lawn mower non-motorized), to my best chef's knife, and most other tools in between, even with a pop bottle once. We can sympathize because we've been there.

Hope your finger quits hurting soon.

Seeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North
