So there I was, washing dishes, minding my own business. In my pad, the window that my little beast cat Kisha uses is right over the kitchen sink. I had some wine glasses sitting there ready for final rinse, when the little shit came rocketing through the window.
In show motion (as it always happens) I see what is about to unfold before me. I make a desperate reach for the glasses to move them out of the way, but I'm too late. She's already got them moving rightwards, and fast; I dive into the actual sink to prevent the matter too late and impale my right thumb webbing right onto a broken glass.
Went to the doctor, and thankfully it only needed some of that crazy glue shit they use. Still, I'm out of work for a few days. Tops!
Funny what you take for granted... here's a list of things so far that I've noticed I need my right hand for (considering I'm mostly left-handed):
- I turn keys in devices with it
- I handle CDs with it
- I wipe my ass with it
- I eat with it
- I hold drinks with it
- I brush my teeth with it
No doubt I'm gonna find more things too... and I hear you say, "WOWZERS! That's fascinating!!!"
