I learned 2 great lessons today:
1) Once the baguette is old and hard, don't try to cut it with the long and serrated knife.
2) Don't use Puff's With Vics Vaporub kleenex on a cut unless you take morphine first.
Luckily after a few minutes of pondering how I could get to the hospital so Mark could sew my blood-pumping knuckle up, the blood dried up, the stinging stopped, and I was back at the breadboard.
~ But the serrated knife was in the sink.
(No, it is not my finger. I don't have that kind of presence of mind! The photo was posed - the blood is cherry juice - and originally uploaded by 'photobunny' on flickr.com. Creepy-cool, hu?)
