There was blood

Another day? Another trauma...

Today, I sliced my hand open. Cleaning the kitchen. Why do I fucking bother trying to clean?

Luckily while I was trying to decide if the cut was deep enough to get stitches or not, I was forced to come up with a way to close the wound.

Problem? I cut myself on a bendy place that will HAVE to move at some point or another before this gash is healed.

Problem? How do I secure said would and allow relative free movement.

Problem? Must do this all one handed as there is naturally no one home to assist me with this problem. (Nor may I spray blood all over the household in an effort to make the pain end, because in retrospect shaking a bleeding hand hither and yon without securing the bleeding portion is apt to cause a mess and/or incite panic in any poor schlob who encounters the bloodbath) ((this may or may not be an anecdotal incident from the past, but I guaran-fucking-tee that I was not the bleeder in the original story))

Solution? paper towel and Pre-wrap.

Hellz bellz! it is good that this crap is finally useful! And please kill me if I pass along further pre-wrap hairdo choices to the girls. Aunt Maggie! You know what I am talking about. All of those hair styles requires a side ponytail....

Sigh.

On the plus side the girls went after school to secure me actual medical supplies. Bisoux mes douce filles!

TJ works for 3M so we have that same stuff around the house all the time. It's great for making removable/reusable splints for owie fingers that get jammed while practicing weird stuff like...oh i don't know - Polish dance and TKD. It rocks out loud.

(Duct tape works well, but taking it off is hell if the wound isn't ready.)

I hope it's not so owie today.
