There's nothing like nearly killing yourself by almost chopping off your finger and bleeding to death while preparing a healthy meal of salad and falafel. The reason more people don't eat more fresh fruits and vegetables? The deadly knives wait. I nearly passed out and had to lie down with my hand up in the air until I quit gushing blood.

Also: you realize just how much you use your left middle finger to type when it's wrapped in a mile of bandaids.

Dang, I didn't realize that the appropriate gloves were so expensive.

I thought of these but they are even more expensive...

What?!? You don't already have a pair of those? How do you get through days when you have to interact with other people?

I carry a mace. They say women should always carry one, right?

Oh! "A" mace! Not a can of mace! Why didn't I get that!?!? That stupid little spray can is nearly impossible to find & I almost set it off by accident a couple times. With A MACE I won't have that problem!

Boy, this blog is such a big help in my life...

I was actually playing on both definitions of the word. Cue comedy sketch about gas-mask-clad mugger confronting a woman who pulls a medieval iron mace out of her bag instead of the little can he'd been expecting...

Heh. I actually own a medieval mace (calvary style, which is somewhat smaller and lighter).

But I thought I would mention that I ended up getting that cutting glove for SWIPIAW for Christmas. She's a terrible person to shop for, but she's managed to slice herself up just like you so it seemed appropriate. I'll have to be more careful of surprising her with some spontaneous physical affection in the kitchen, though.

Williams-Sonoma actually has a finger guard thing that is about ten or fifteen bucks or so. But every time I am by their store they are always out of them.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
