(back)stabbed by an avocado

Remember all the nice things I said about avocados the other day? Well that was then, this is now.

I spent four hours in the ER last night, and might need hand surgery, b/c a very slippery avocado pit -- combined with my lazy effort to dig the pit out of the shell with a very scary knife -- resulted in some serious blood and guts.

Of course, I'm such a wimp, it doesn't take much to freak me out, but holy guacamole, this was quite a scene. Still, I tried to convince my husband that a paper-towel wrap was all I needed. Fortunately, he insisted, and off we went. After the requisite interminable wait, they cleaned me up and discovered that I needed more than stitches, since I apparently hit a nerve, literally.

I never had stitches before. And I've been dodging tetanus shots since I graduated from high school. So much for all that.

Meanwhile I'm typing with one hand for the moment.

Do I really blame the avocado? You bet I do!

You poor thing!! Hope the nerve heals okay. And the rest of the hand, too.
