Glorious Wounds

I am always quite excited by each new wound I receive while working at the bakery. They are usually pretty pathetic little cuts or bruises, but someday I'll get a whopper of a wound with blood, stitches, and burns all rolled into one.

This one is actually somewhat impressive. A heavy roll of plastic wrap started to fall off a shelf and I instinctively pressed my arm against it to keep it from falling, but it did anyway while the serrated edge happily scraped against my wrist. It bled freely for a while making it look like I had tried to do myself in. It really didn't hurt until I spread that Liquid Skin stuff on it. Then it smarted pretty bad.

Hi Joanne. Nice gash. Just stopping in to see your blog since you kindly left your ID on mine. I wasn't a blog fan previously and I'm not sure if I'll continue blogging after Peace Corps, but for now it's pretty cool. Wouldn't you agree? Looks like you've been at it for a short time.

I also enjoy your pets, but couldn't we have come up with more unconventional names? Aw screw it they're cute.

I used to have a blog a while ago, but it started to take itself too seriously. Now I just need an excuse to waste time. But for you-- well you're a good writer. You should keep it up.

More unconventional?! Let's hear your suggestions. I named Rimsky after a character in "The Master and Margarita" by Bulgakov. And Coco, well, you know. Coco Chanel...

I have memories of pictures posted of a gash in Jonner's hand or arm or something... years ago. or am I experiencing deja vu?
I, too, sort of feel proud of my blue collar roughed-up hands. I have (I kid you not) at least a dozen seperate small cuts on my hands. Nothing like your big one. Congratulations on that, by they way.

Yeah Jonner gashed his hand on a broken glass while doing dishes. Wow, I can't believe you remember that picture. I don't.

Hey, make sure you let us all know when you get a good one.
