Last Tuesday, after posting the “Q” photos, I started making lunch. I was using a new mandolin, slicing eggplant (without using the safety holder–stupid, stupid, STUPID!). Without going into great detail, after three hours at the emergency room, there is no bone damage, 1/8 inch of my finger tip is gone, but I should recover okay. AAAAAAAAGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!
I was hoping to make it through a whole year without finger injuries. Last year, I managed to sew through the end of a finger on my left hand. A month later, I was helping with alpaca shearing, and had another finger tip nipped by the clippers. My family thinks I should be banned from any sharp objects. Oh well, that’s life.
