OK, I'm a clutz. I was slicing potatoes using a mandolin, and not using the safety equipment. Three and a half hours in the er, and seven stitches later, my thumb is throbbing.

So now I'm not supposed to use it (typing with one hand, here) for two weeks. No dishes, no gardening, no laundry. I guess it's time for the boys to really chip in around here!

OUCH! So sorry that happened. I would have fainted, but that's a long story, hehe. Glad you got it taken care of. Now you know why those silly guards are included in the package. Or you can get a kevlar glove like Alton Brown uses, hehe.

As for typing, it's your thumb, hit space with the other one, hehe.

Take it easy and hope it heals well.
