Stabbed !!!



This morning as I was slugging my tired achy body out of the grocery store I ran into my mom.

"Whats wrong with your hand ?"she asked.

"I stabbed myself"

"What?"

"I stabbed myself as I was making salad for dinner last night"

In one split second my mom pushed her cart away and said "We are going to the hospital right this minute "
So 2 hours later.... I am all fixed up.....deep gash about 1 inch from the jugular... I will be packing boxes one handed.


PS yes i really did stab myself...it was the all american scene at our house that early evening... hubby outside grilling , I was inside chopping veggies for salad, and the teens upstairs doing homework... when all of a sudden I decided that my knife wasnt sharp enough... so I began sharpening the knife... and on one of the sharpening swings... the knife went into my wrist instead of onto the sharpener.... aghh.... blood everywhere... and suddenly the all american scene at our house looked like a murder scene instead.

You went to the grocery store, Mecca of all evil infectious strains of bacteria and viruses, with an OPEN WOUND?

And people think I'm crazy.

Good heavens! Hope all is well now. Take it easy with those knives! Your description of it looking like a murder scene reminded me of the time my daughter dropped a bottle of red nail polish, which bounced off the carpet, spilling polish on the carpet and splattering the walls and bookshelves. It looked like a murder scene too. Sigh. Am glad you weren't hurt worse! Lovely photo.
