Typing Without the Use of One Finger is a Suckfest

I cut my left pointer finger pretty badly at work today. I was julienne-ing some orange zest for Orange Honey, used on the cheese plate served as a first course. The knife was sharp. My focus was not.

I chopped off part of my nail and a good chunk of flesh. Now THERE'S a visual for ya. Ick.

So now there's a band-aid on it and it keeps bleeding and it hurts like a mo-fo. Nerve-endings exposed and all that any touch makes me cringe and curse internally.

So, yeah. Typing hurts. Tons. Tried to type on my computer without using that finger, but my fingers are specifically trained a certain way. Typos. Frustration. OW.

Which is possibly why I'm writing this on my iPhone. Thumbs. I can do thumbs...


  1. OUCH!! That sounds incredibly painful. So sorry, sis! I will pray for you that it will heal well..... and quickly! I love your previous post. What a year! I am so impressed with your LEAPS of faith! WOW. I love you. I miss you. I'm incredibly PROUD of you. ((HUG))

  2. oh sad! I hope it heals soon! Congrats on the new job by the way=) I hope I get to taste your cooking someday!

  3. What exactly does mo-fo feel/hurt like?

    "Thumbs" that was sad but funny.

    Tell me/us more about your new job!
