Okay so here’s a little back story…I’m not allowed near sharp objects. EVER!!! This includes…knifes, plastic knifes, rulers, pencils, plastic spoons (they have a sharp edge), screw drivers, cardboard, oh the list goes on and on…
Well today while helping out at school decorating the first grades bulletin board I stapled my thumb. It went straight through! You could feel the tip on the other side of my thumb. Luckily it wasn’t poking out. At first I was good, I told my friend “um I’m going to go to the school nurse” her response was “oh God”. So I headed on over…walk in and said I stapled my thumb. She had a class of kindergartens getting weighed and measured who all wanted to see. So being the kind compassionate always eager to please I showed them. The boys loved it the most. So the nurse pulls out her plier like scissors and gets ready to pull the staple out. She asked me if I needed a chair but of course I said no, I’m good. In reality I was praying I didn’t pass out. Well she pulled it out, and it hurt so bad I held back the tears and said “oiy”.
So now I have a puncture wound, as the nurse called it, and my thumb hurts! It really hurts! I am now not allowed near the stapler and it has been added to the list. I am really hoping to live this down…news travels so fast in public school.
Oh I refrained from the visuals I figured you would be okay with it. Oh and I have pictures of some cards I did over the weekend and will post them tomorrow, I’m supposed to have my thumb up so it doesn’t throb so bad.
