CRAP!! I gave my self a BOOBOO!!

OK... um ya... Just when u thought crafting was a nice SAFE pastime... something happens... I was involved with a crafting crime... the perpetrator? this pair of deceptive pair of scissors... i know they look all Innocent ....but BEWARE!! You never know when they will unleash their rage!!!

Then they BITE you!! You see i was in state of euphoria... a night off from work... dinner all done ....and a whole, guilt free crafting night ahead of me... then out of nowhere... my had slipped as i was trying to cut a heavy belt off a cute, rhinestone, belt buckle. And BAM!! The evil ,little ,buggers jumped up, and sliced my finger wide open! I cussed some awful profanity and my hubby jumped up to see what was wrong... and grabbed me a dishtowel to stop the gush... then we headed to the E.R... after waiting a while... this pleasant looking lady came in and started out all sweet and nice as she cleans up my gash ... as we were talking pleasantry's.. out of NOWHERE Like David friggin Copperfield she whips out this Really, Long, Needle!!!This Sweet lady was really a sneaky, needle, wielding, MADWOMAN!!! I Panicked ,and Pleaded with her to give me a chance to prepair my self for the torture ....i saw i had no choice but endure!! So i just barley regained my composure when.... with a twinkle in her eye.... she shoved her instrument of torture into my now throbbing finger... it seemed to take forever... and then again she jabs me with the evil little tool.... after what seemed like hrs.... .. finely it was over!! As i started to breath again.. she said... she would have one of her minions come in, and clean, and prepair my wound for repair.... now my finger was blissfully Numb.. and i felt pretty good about my predicament.. thinking "ahhhh it will be over soon" after about 30 Min's later .. a young man came in to attend to my wound ...although mildly irritated about waiting 30 mins for him... he started to charm, and amuse me with funny, Halloween costumes he has worn in the past...he then finished up cleaning and preparing my finger for the next step in my ordeal.... i ... (still numb) was starting to feel better about the situation.... he left..... and i waited... and waited ...and waited... 45 mins later i could start to feel my finger again... screaming and throbbing.... another 20 mins after that the "Needle wielding magician" came back in... i knew what had to be done and my body clenched as i told her that the numbing potion had worn off.... I saw the excitement in her eyes as she went for her torture device... and she again.... impaled me twice more with her weapon!!! she again left the room ... at this point i am wiping the tears of pain from my eyes and thinking of some uncomfortable ailments for the horrid witch... when she came back in to stitch my poor battered finger back together... Finally!! after 6 stitch's my left pointer was back together!!! It was over!! But then i had to wait another 30 mins for my chance to escape!!My savor was a sweet older gentleman came in and gave me my Key to escape!! I hurriedly scratched my given name onto the document, and was Pleased to see,,,, The gentle old man had given me access to a magic pill! i slowly edged my way out of this house of horrors and my wonderful knight in shinning armor ( MY HUBBY) carried me off home in his large, gold ,350, chariot!! after a little bit i was granted reprieve of my pain with a little bit of heaven (pain pill) ..... now i looked at my poor little finger and have decided to name my poor little stem "franken finger." i hope i can get over the trauma i had to endure tonight by sharing my tale of woe with all of u.. while typing with one finger in a state of medicated bliss .. i thank u if u have made it through this crap iv typed... i do feel better though ... but my crafting will be on hold for about a week ... ill just drown my sorrows in some Halloween choc... and hopefully i will be back in action in a while!!! here is a pic of my bandaged

swollen finger ....
