I was crawling around on my hands and knees in a dimly lit area, ( really should change that light globe), picking up shards of something broken....
I moved forward, put my hand down....
on something sharp sticking up off the floor.
ow ow ow!
The edge of a broken cd cover had gouged into the side of my hand and left a hole with a strip of hanging skin. Which I cut off with kitchen scissors.
I held it under running water, then in a clean towel while I tried to open a bandaid without dropping the towel and dripping blood everywhere.
Got the wound covered then kept on picking up bits and pieces.....thinking back now, I probably should have just swept everything into a dustpan.....but sometimes my brain takes itself off on a little holiday.
The gouge wasn't very big, nor very deep, but that damn thing bled like a stuck pig.
Right through the first bandaid in about two minutes.
I changed bandaid after bandaid and it has finally dried up.
Want to see?
With a hole in it.
