Slice of Life Challenge #Day 21
Last night when I cut the top of my thumb quite deeply while I was slicing some vegetables, it didn’t seem to have the same impact as other times. I quickly ran it under cold water, applied pressure, bound it tightly with a hanky (probably not meant to use those any more, but I still do and it was handy right then!) and then lifted it above my head (following my daughter’s nursing advice for cut fingers).
It had started to bleed quite profusely and was hurting for a while, but then it stopped almost immediately and the pain went. I regarded it with some puzzlement. Normally I would be rejoicing that all my know how tricks had worked and that a silly mistake was going to be okay and would heal.
This is definitely not the usual thumbs up emoji signal!
Now all I can think about is that I want to get out of here in two weeks time and back for our daughter’s wedding. All the country’s airports are closed to international flights for a week from 22nd March. Will they reopen after that?
