HandIt’s been over a year since the last time I cut my thumb with a chef’s knife, but it happened again this morning as I diced a little filling for my omelette.

This one was a bit more serious a gash…so reluctantly I went to the ER to have it checked out. No stitches required, but they glued it closed and wrapped it up…as you can see at right.

So, I get to wear this bad boy for two days and then turn to regular bandaids (I hope).

One good thing about having extremely sharp knives — it didn’t hurt when it happened. It does now though…but it’s nothing a couple bottles of local wine can’t cure.

Be careful out there folks.
