I love Halloween. However, this year, I'm the Grinch of Halloween.
I decided that I was going to make some cute pumpkin cookies using my cookie press. I made the delicous butter cookie dough and dyed it a lovely shade of orange. I loaded the dough into the press and the plunger wouldn't move. So, with my left hand I was pulling the trigger and with the right I was pressing on the plunger. And wouldn't you know it, yes, you guessed it, my right hand slipped and my web went down the metal teeth of the darn thing and I cut my webbing between the my thumb and first finger.
The pain turned my stomach over, I looked down and there was a huge hole in my hand. I grabbed a wad of paper towels and applied pressure and threw my hand up in the air. I gave my son Parker the phone and told him to call Aaron at work.
Aaron thought I was going to take myself to the hospital. I told him that wasn't possible because I thought I was going to pass out. About 15 minutes later he was home and took me to the ER. We spent only (ha ha) two hours there and I got three stitches. Hey, that works out to 40 minutes per stitch. OUCH! Oh yeah, and a tetanus shot. You, have gotta love injuring yourself.
And yes, as you can tell I am a HUGE BABY.
So, Here's a picture of my right hand and the stitches. Kinda hard to see because it was kinda hard to take the picture.
