I have just had another accident with the breadknife. That makes 3 serious accidents involving kitchen utensils and my fingers in the last couple of months. I'm not sure what it is that I am doing differently from usual, or why I have suddenly gotten so clumsy just after we got all these new sharp knives and graters, but it really has to stop.
On the plus side, I didn't faint this time – probably as a result of the regular exposure to my own blood. Now I am able to remain upright and yell for Shaun to come and do the first aid. I am aware that once the injury is sustained, it is best that I don't look at it until it is properly healed. It's a coping mechanism.
Today I was cutting some bread with the bread knife when I put it through the end of my middle finger. Last time it was my index finger, and the time before it was my thumb – although that was the grater, not the knife.
Maybe I should get some chain-mail gloves.
