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.

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