I sliced my thumb with a chef’s knife this evening while chopping up potatoes. No chunk went missing – so no cannibalism tonight. It sliced right into my thumb as I tried to push a piece of potato off the knife. YIKES!

Drop everything
Wash hands
Wrap paper towel around thumb
Upstairs to find bandaids
Dump bandaids out on bed to find large size at bottom of box
Unwrap thumb
Apply generous blop of Neosporin to area
Put bandaid on
Notice seepage through bandaid
Wrap strip of medical tape around thumb to hide unsightly blood through bandaid
Thumb throbbing
Return to finish potatoes

Thank God I have a thumb in the first place and can stand in the kitchen to prepare dinner and a family to feed.

I don't believe humans truly have a purpose. Our goal is to survive until we expire. Period. Joy is pleasurable and worrying is not. Balance in life is crucial; but if the scales must tip, may they tip on the side of joy. I’m just another human trying to survive. I blog because I can and because I enjoy it, not because it serves any purpose.
