Painful Lessons

I learned a few things yesterday while I was cooking dinner.  The first thing I learned wasn’t really a lesson at all since I already possessed the knowledge.  I was using a mandolin to slice up some zucchini.


A mandolin is a very useful kitchen tool…..and I “re-learned” that it is deadly sharp, (as in instrument of torture sharp).  So I am sure by now you realize that I must have cut myself.  Yep. 

The second thing I learned is that I have a relatively low tolerance for great gobs of blood loss.  I always thought I handled myself very well when injured.  Yesterday, when I couldn’t get the bleeding to stop, let alone slow down, I started to worry.  The worry turned in to having a hot flash with copious sweating….but, thankfully I did not pass out.  I did sit down with a wet paper towel and kept applying pressure to my finger. 




As you can see, it did a number on my little pinky finger.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
