Topping the list…

… of the dumbest things I’ve ever done. Thinking my immersion blender was unplugged I was cleaning it and accidentally turned it on while my finger was next to the blade. We rushed to urgent care only to be sent to the ER because the bone was fractured at the tip along with three gnarly slices across the fingertip and through the nail. The ER decided I didn’t need a surgeon and they stitched it up – seven hours after the incident. Needless to say, I will not be cooking for the next few days.

    Oh man, Pam sorry to see that. But it reminds me of a great line:

    “Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?”

    ouchie! I once stuck my hand in the Hobart before it had come to a stop. One of my fingers split open (to the bone – blechk!) from the pressure (of course my hand got stuck between the paddle and the bowl).

    but blade cuts are the worst. I hope it feels better soon.
