So, without looking, I grabbed the wrong paring knife that was larger than the one I intended to use, and my sense of distance between the hand and the blade wasn't correct when I started using it, resulting the tip of the blade to slice my finger all the way to the bone... I might need to stitch it, but right now, I have to work. The blood keeps on gashing out like a fountain, so in order to keep working, I sealed the wound with layers of band aids and masking tapes and tin foil! (You see, it's on the middle finger, and you can imagine I'm having fun with it. *grin*) Well, although rare, injuries do happen in a bookbindery, and it's usually a burn or cut fingers, but this is the worst cut I've had since I stated working here. As for a burn, I remember one intern who was branded a word on her upper arm by a hot stamping machine! I don't remember what word it was, but I know it wasn't a cool word to be permanently branded on the arm. I hope it wasn't someone's name or anything! Yikes!
