Re: Ridiculous Injuries

indeed. 2 years ago I amputated the tip of my thumb when a soufflee dish broke in my hand. You wouldn't believe how sharp the edges of ceramic shards can be.
Fortunately, I lived very close to the hospital and they could sew the bit back on. It's partially numb, though, and I have difficulties sewing as I don't feel the needle I'm holding.

The incident was particularly vexing as it was my favourite dish and it broke right *after* I had washed it.

And I've broken my toes 5 or 6 times already by bumping into door frames. The last 3 times I didn't even go to my GP but treated it myself.
