I Must Be Adopted

I am truly hopeful that I am adopted, and thus not as messed up as the rest of my family.

Ouch! That Hurt!

Anybody ever see the movie "City of Angels"? Remember the part where Nicholas Cage's character cuts through his finger, but because he's an angel, nothing happens?

Well, apparently, I'm no angel.

Last Saturday while cutting an onion up for use with dinner, I sliced into my pinkie finger. It freakin' HURT!

However, the wife, was very cool under pressure... That is if you want to count jumping up and down screaming "Oh my God!!! Oh my God!!!" Within a minute or two, she calmed down enough to run to the basement and get a roll of paper towels -- we were out in the kitchen.

I didn't really need the 20+ sheets she tore off for me, but I appreciated the thought.

To sum things up, it was the tip of the pinkie, I did not go the hospital or doctors (despite the wife's protests), I bleed until Tuesday, and looking at it now, I went more than 1/3 the way through the finger, but not quite half way. I did manage to slice part way through my finger nail, but it's a clean slice -- apparently my knives are extremely sharp, and most importantly... it still HURTS like you wouldn't believe if I bang it with anything.

My one friend (he also happens to be my boss), has proposed the experiment, whereby I just cut that part of my finger off and see if it grows back. I told him I'd pass on that one.

come on if a cheerleader can do it you must be able to.....save the cheerleader, save the world.

She cut off a toe, so maybe toes are easier than fingers?
