Aloha “ouch” Friday

This post will be short as my left index finger is still sore. What happened you ask? Yes you did, you asked. Well. Wednesday afternoon I hurried when I should taken my sweet-bippy time. Rotary cutter in my right hand, I zipped when I should have carefully rolled. I zipped across my left index finger taking off a 1/4 inch slice of finger and nail. Brilliant. I thought, look at all that blood near my material. Crap. Then I thought about my deformed finger and how I should probably look for the little piece. I then called for J to get my Kaiser card and started laughing. What else could I do? It hurt like a _______ (insert any expletive, I used them all).

Miss J was afraid to leave me alone yesterday, “What if you need me to drive you to emergency?” Squirmish little thing. I’ve probably scarred her for life. As I look at my finger today it doesn’t look so bad and it’ll probably heal fine but the killer? I wasn’t able to clear all the blood out of my fabric. That piques me. Puis nez.

I wish for you, my keiki, a smooth weekend starting with a wonderful Aloha Friday. Me, I’m hiding all the sharp objects. Love to all. Be good, be brave.

  1. Joelle,

    Perhaps gardening gloves while you rotary cut??

    Ouch is right!

    Hope it heals quickly…in the meanwhile…stick to scissors!

  2. Loretta,

    Ha! :) I’m thinking full body armor is in order. I’d probably stab myself with scissors. It’s always something. ;)
