So we went to the grocery store and I saw this collar that was SO cute for Pepper, so we got it for her. Since she's still so little, it was too big for her. I tried to use a pen to poke a new hole in it, but that wasn't working. Jason (my hubby) says "Here - I'll do it" and takes it from me. Next thing I know he grabs the VERY SHARP kitchen knife sitting by the sink and jabs it into the collar (don't worry, it wasn't on Pepper!!). Well, the knife definately cut through the collar, but it also went straight through his finger! There was blood EVERYWHERE - and I don't do blood very well. After I freaked out for a minute I decided we needed to go to the hospital because the normal practice of holding it above your hear and putting pressure on it wasn't working, and he was getting blood all over the kitchen. We get to the hospital and he's still bleeding so they put us right in. He ended up getting 4 stitches in his finger, and they told us that he had nicked an arterie! I didn't know you had arteries in your fingers. Learn something new every day I guess. The funny part was when we were waiting on the doctor to come back I heard her down the hall laughing with a nurse and I caught the words "trying to fit a kitty cat collar". They were making fun of him! Now that it's over and he's okay, it's really funny... What possessed him to use the sharpest knife in the house is beyond me!
