typing with one hand…

i am typing this entire entry with one hand so don’t expect anything that requires me to use the shift key…

I wish i had a gloriously fun reason for this, we all know what I’m talking about (hey I just shifted with one hand, then I did it again!! I freaking rock!!!). As i was saying my one handed typing spree isn’t fun, sexy or glorious. It’s stupid and painful, shameful almost.

In these two weeks of bathroom drudgery I had yet to hurt my delicate little self until 10 minutes ago when i managed to pinch the palm of my right hand between the back of my hammer and the chunk of wall I was prying out. It could have been so much worse so many times. Like last week when I stepped on a piece of drywall with a nail sticking out of it. Luckily I was wearing sneakers and the sole was just thick enough to let the nail poke my sock and make no actual skin contact.

Right now I am just relieved I was wearing leather work gloves because what is now forming into a mighty blood blister on my tiny silky smooth palm probably would have been much worse without that extra layer of protection.

So ice. I have a palm full of icy cold goodness in the form of K’s “boo boo buddy”. There really was no point to this, I just needed something to distract me from my pain, so you good people have to suffer through this horribly boring and uneventful post.

The moral? Wear safety gear and stop reading my post once you realize I am not talking about masturbation, I’m just whining about my tiny little hand owie.

    Its your bathroom, getting even with you for taking those days off. Its trying to harm you. I hope you beat it into submission with that hammer!

    Ah! Memories of earning my carpentry stripes. The bashed fingers, scar from a 2×4 stud dropped from 2 stories down onto my chin while I looked up yelling, “I got it! I got it!” – and I did get it…., oh the stories.But this isnt about me – its about you. I wish I had earned some sage advice on how to deal with a mashy wound, but ice is perhaps as good as it gets – next to putting chilled 90% Aloe Vera Gel on it.As my boss of many years ago would say.., “Hammers are not made for crushing skin” – to which I would say, “Tell that to the HAMMER!”
