Hi guys! I had to take a little break from making lunches and excessive typing early this week. I was invited to do some bento demonstrations and show my Stella & Dot jewels with my mommy group at a friend's house on Sunday evening. During my very first bento demonstration of an Aussie apple, (which is normally a very non-dramatic event) I cut myself. Badly. The apple slicer I was using completely broke apart as I was pushing down on it. I received nearly identical lacerations on both my thumbs and palms, three on each. Yikes! I spent the balance of the evening in the emergency room getting stitches, which was such a bummer. My left hand, which took the brunt of the force, is especially sore and bruised black and blue from my wrist to above my first knuckle. Not pretty in the least. The picture below is one that my friend's husband took after we hightailed it to the ER.
As a sort of funny/crazy aside, on the way to the hospital, our friend who drove behind my car broke down half way there, and we had to pull over and wait until she could call for help! All I could do was laugh at the situation and try to keep my upholstery clean. Anyway, I'm grateful my thumbs are still attached, (yay, I needed those!) that there were no children present, and that I had some wonderfully capable and caring friends to do what needed to be done.
