NO WAIT -- come back -- this post isn't about scrapbooking, honest! Read on and you'll see.
A couple of years I noticed an enormous dent in my thigh, about the size of a matchbox and 1/2 cm deep. I kept an eye on it for a couple of weeks and it didn't go away so I started to get really nervous. What if it was bone cancer or some kind of muscle wasting disease? I Googled 'dent in my leg' and found thousands of other people having the same problem, caused by -- wait for it -- leaning your thigh against your desk or table!
Not. Even. Kidding.
In my case, it was from leaning against my table while scrapbooking. I stopped leaning, the dent went away.
Now yesterday, while making a nativity scene for a local kindy, I knocked my very pointy and very sharp Fiskars scissors off the table to my lap, and in trying to grab them, I drove them point first into my thigh.
They went in like a knife into butter and stuck there.
I had a visitor so I couldn't even investigate the damage right away. I had to hobble away to my bathroom and take off my (new) pants to see the wound, and of course now there was blood running everywhere and my (new) pants have a big hole in them.
The bleeding stopped quickly so I disinfected and slapped a band-aid on and went back to cutting out mangers and Wise Guys, but I told Fabio I should be getting more money for scrapbooking because it is dangerous. (he said but then I would just buy more dangerous stuff with it, and he can't let me do that. Clever, Fabio, clever.)
