This week I did something really 'stupid'. Now I don't like to use that 's' word often, but in this case it is the perfect word.
I was making dinner - actually cooking- and not ordering out for my hubby. Mexican was on the menu, so I was cleaning an avocado. I grabbed the paring knife I was using to 'stab' out the pit. Well, you can imagine what happened! I missed the pit and the knife went right in my hand. 2+ cm
Being one who has had her fill of stiches, I knew that this punture wound would not need one, but the fact that I couldn't feel my finger, said I had better go get it checked out. So off to the ER we went.
They cleaned it out, put glue on it ( the new kind of stitch) and said I was lucky I didn't cut any tendons or MAJOR nerves. There is some nerve damage and it will take a while for the numbness to go away. GREAT
So now, I am learning how to work mainly with one hand. My golf game is on hold, and also many other things. Did I know better than to stab my avocado- of course! But I was busy chatting ( hard to believe) and just grabbed the closes knife. STUPID
How many times have we done something and we KNOW better, but we just go ahead. yep i bet we all have done at least one or 2. What were your moments of doing 'stupid' stuff?
