i like me some avocados. they are tasty little suckers and i could eat them daily if i had the opportunity to. but those tasty little suckers have ruined me. how so?
well thursday i was trying to take the pit out of one at work, making myself a tomato and avocado salad. the knife slipped and i stabbed myself. and when i say stabbed i mean stabbed, the blade, a serrated one no less, when right into the palm of my hand below the knuckle of my middle finger.
blood ensued, and lots of it. as well as pain, and yelling fuck about a half a billion times. my coworkers of course were freaked out, and i am sure the site of me holding a bloody hand wasn't that appealing.
anyway, the emergency team showed up, with a dr, and the dr said i didnt need stitches.
fast forward 9 hours, and i am at the emergency room with blood squirting 6 feet out of my hand, and i apparently had punctured an artery, and possibly severed a nerve.
for the last 5 days i have had half of my middle finger numb.
my hand looks like i punched a brick wall since it is black and blue as a result of the blood flowing into the tissue of my hand.
it is still swollen a bit as a result of all of this.
and now i get to see a hand specialist.
by the way, i typed this, you guessed it, one handed.
so besides being fucking swamped at work, this is my life. a comedy of bloody errors.
