The importance of digits

 A note on avoiding domestic accidents: don't try to force heavy objects into small spaces when distracted. I squashed my ring finger (the irony is by no means lost on me) and my pinkie between the wall and a gas canister last night. Result: loss of blood, fractures, swelling, bruises and a dinky little splint.
Now I'm not advocating that you go and mutilate yourself if you're feeling down, but darn - it sure is a good distraction.
In a few weeks I'll be right as rain, but in the meantime typing is slow and I have to walk instead of drive. That's the best thing.

remember when I chopped the tip off my finger and you made me tea and did my shopping? sorry I'm not there to help. PLEASE be careful of your little fingers, you only have ten.
