in stitches

I can hear Dan Akroyd doing his best Julia Child,
"Oh now I've done it, I've cut the dickens out of my finger"

After 3 hours waiting in the ER and then staring up at this drop ceiling, I am 7 stitches stronger and typing really slow after a mishap with a (brittle) drinking glass in sudsy dishwater.

And on my special hand no less.

PhotosThe aftermath, for those that don't faint at the sight of stitches... really

Ouch be sure to keep that clean. We would hate to see you get an infection and have it fall off.

Do I even want to know why that's the "special" hand?

Yikes! I'm hoping that wasn't as painful as it looks. I never realized dishes could be that risky.
