Don't be like me

May 19, 2010

A word to the wise: Don't ever get so excited about finally booking an upcoming vacation (to Maui!) that you forget to pay attention while doing the dishes.

You might accidentally drop a heavy cake plate dome (a wedding gift) in the sink. And it will, I promise, break in to several pieces.

And those pieces will most certainly slice up your thumb and middle finger.

Again, like I said, don't be like me.

Upon seeing your bleeding fingers don't automatically assume you have cut off your thumb. Because this will cause you to fall to the floor and begin hyperventilating.

Be sure to marry a nice man who will come to your rescue, assure you that your thumb is still completely attached, and bandage you up.

So, don't do what I did. Because it is really hard to type with two bum fingers. Trust me.

  1. smulie!! i hope youre fingers get better soon. . . in the meantime-yay maui!!!

  2. Oh no, I'm so glad you didn't cut your thumb off!! That sounds like something that I would do... just yesterday I got distracted while cooking spaghetti and dropped my spatula on the floor (where we had just bought a new rug). While cleaning up the mess with a towel I almost caught the towel on fire (it started smoking) b/c I mindlessly got to close to the burner. WHAT A MESS!!

  3. What, no bloody photos?
    First let me say, this is NOT funny, however, I am laughing! I am laughing only because I have personally witnessed your histrionics when it comes to injury and blood! My sympathy to the husband....oh, and I'm glad you still have your thumb!
    Love you.

  4. I'm glad your fine. I was reading hoping not to hear about a trip to the ER for stitches. I know how much my son loves you because as I recall blood isn't one of his favorite things either.
    Take care & tell Jon he will have to do the dishes until you are healed.

  5. AAwww. Well I am glad you have your thumb and a nice man to take care of you. I will work on not repeating this, but i make no promises. YEAH for Maui. What fun you two will have.
