I made a rather foolish mistake this morning, and now I am typing with one hand as a result of it.
Early in the morning, before caffeine or contact lenses, I decided to try and cut a block of soap into a useable chunk--in the palm of my hand, instead of on a cutting board. Needless to say, I underestimated everything and ended up slicing my hand open.
Luckily I'm relatively uninjured, but it did result in a trip to the doctor's office and a new tetanus shot, not to mention a lot of embarrassment.
So, hopefully others can learn from my moment of idiocy--use a cutting board!
