Sarah's weekly attempt at being funny.

Some people shouldn't be allowed to handle tools. I happen to be one of those people.

Case-in-point: I attended a wilderness-ish girls' camp when I was a teenager (we had cabins and running water and electricity, sure, but it was still "roughing" it). One of the classes we took was on proper use and handling of axes and hatches. (See? That's pretty wilderness-y.) The intelligent adults teaching the class knew me well. Too well. My certification test went something like this... "If we were to give you an ax, how would you use it." Then I pantomimed the proper use of an ax. These people were smart. If anyone was going to die in hatchet class, it would have been me. I actually ended up with a pretty grotesque injury from the class on tying knots, but that's a story for another day.

So, we're all on the same page about the I-shouldn't-be-within-100-feet-of-sharp-objects thing, right? Good. Today's Friday Funny will consist of a picture and a caption that pretty much sums up the relationship I have with tools. From earlier this week:

I caught the saw, and the saw won.
Don't worry Mom--all my fingers are still attached. AND, I discovered my tetanus shots are up to date. Aren't you proud?!

*gasp* Is that really a picture of your hand?

My dad used to tell me I was an accident waiting to happen.

He was right.

Yup, Donna. My hand. It's been one of those weeks. :)

I love it. I have a finger recovering from slicing it with a kitchen knife.

Sarah M Eden said...

Cassandra - We're like twins!

Jan Markley said...

Yikes! Take care, hope it isn't your writing hand!

I hope you are on the mend. I hope the saw was moved far, far away.
