[Comments] (4) Walking Wounded: I accidentally stabbed myself in the thigh with my little sharp scrapbooking scissors. I must have hit a vein, or there is not much left of my leg, or something, because it spurted great loads of purple [oxygenated] arterial blood. Oh no! Shall I panic? Shall I call 911? No. I shall apply pressure to the wound and discourage the dogs from investigating. I made it to the bathroom and butterflied it shut with a band-aid. As swelling has started in, the bleeding has quieted down, and now it hurtz.

Yes, my tetanus shot is up to date. Is YOURS, faithful reader?

Your crafts are always hurting you... sewing your finger, razorblading your finger, stabbing yourself.. Silly Mommy. I hope you are ok.

By the way, they wouldn't give me a tetnus shot when I went to Romania. They are supposed to last 10 years.

I got my last one in the emergency room the time I razor bladed my finger.
