Get a pencil and paper, because you may have to take notes to follow me.
This is why I have a Hello Kitty bandage on my left bird finger.
First, an illustrative photo. Keep it handy.
Only the tab broke off inside the slot and stuck there. I use that thing all the time, so I needed to get the tab out.
Mr. Icepick to the rescue! I took the guard off the icepick — oops, no, the guard stayed on but the dull end came out of the handle, as it frequently does (I use the icepick to poke a hole in her medicine gelcap so I can squeeze the liquid into the water that all her medicine is dissolved in to put down her G-tube). THEN I took the guard off and got the tab out.
While I had the icepick out, I decided to mend it, so I got out the craft glue.
The cap of the craft glue wouldn’t come off (Hello? Glue?), so I got out the scissors and cut a little slit in the tube.
Now, anybody who knows me knows I can’t be trusted with glue. There was glue all over me, all over the kitchen counter, and all over the scissors. So I cleaned everything up.
The goddamn scissors bit me! The freakin’ TOP of the blade is like a razor! I’m like, If the bad guys ever come for me, I want to be carrying those scissors.
So that’s why I’m wearing a bandage on my left bird finger.
I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about a soup that turned out very differently than I planned, but delightful in another way.
