This is really just a reminder to not become complacent / too at ease with the tools we use every day. They can all be quite dangerous.
I couldn’t agree more, Dwain. I managed to cut one of those slippery
rtv molds yesterday, without a mishap. Today I was cutting the stems
down on some flowers and sliced open my finger. It could have been a
lot worse. My new absolute: when ever I have a scalpel in my hand I
will be in the moment, totally focused on the task at hand. I will
always, always have all fingers out of the path of the knife-
assuming that it can slip. Here’s wishing you a speedy recovery, and
thanks for the reminder!
