I did that last night!! It wasn't cutting a chew in half, but I was clipping Chester's nails and my clippers need sharpening so I decided to use the kitchen scissors instead because they are super-sharp. I was holding his foot and pressing together with the scissors on one of his nails, and then they gave with a sharp snap, and my thumb was in the way, and I've sliced it about half the way around. It hurts like anything and I thought I might have to have it stitched at one point cos those scissors really are VERY sharp! What a dill...
Here is a list of silly but very dangerous things I have done in my life as being a clumsy kid!
1. 4 years old - spilled kettle of boiling water on feet trying to pour my grandpa a cup of tea. Two weeks in hospital, third degree burns, skin grafts, one month in a wheelchair.
2. 11 years old - tried to climb down onto a rock whilst watching beginning of Sydney to Hobart yacht race, slipped, fell down cliff face landed between two giant boulders cut and bruised from head to foot.
3. 16 years old - ballet class came out of a turn and broke bone in foot in half. Had it removed surgically 8 months later.
4. 20 years old - fell off a shelf that I was leaning on (it came off the wall) broke wrist, had subsequent surgery on wrist and shoulder, never been the same since.
Talk about accident prone!!
