About two or three weeks ago, I discovered a new passion of mine: cooking.
Don’t laugh. Cooking is like programming: Doing it is a lot of fun and its rewards – when done right – are worth so much more than any work you could have put into it – especially if you value a good meal as much as I do.
With cooking, there comes cleaning of dishes and various tools you need while doing your job
Last Saturday, after preparing a nice and very tasty tomato soup, I put a knife like the one you are seeing to the right (thanks Wikipedia) into the dish water – together with other dirty things, ready to clean them up.
Then I grabbed into the foam-covered dish to take out one of the things in to to rinse it clean.
I’m sparing you the picture of how my finger looked once I finished pushing it into the blade of the mincing knife.
Seeing how the finger looks right now, I’m pretty sure I should have gone to a doctor to have it sewn, but I didn’t have time for it back then and now it’s healed enough that sewing won’t do any good without reopening the wound which I certainly don’t want anybody to do right now (it stopped hurting this morning).
On the upside, I will have a nice scar to show around :-)
- Don’t put knives into foam covered dish water
- Typing with nine fingers is quite hard if one of the disabled fingers is your middle-finger
- Cooking can be a painful experience.
- We never stop learning.
- Blogs really are pointless sometimes
