Today’s Post

Sunday my wife and I bought our first food processor. It took me less than five minutes to put the sharpness of the blades to the test. The blades are, as the many warning labels attest, sharp. As a writer, I can think of no worse minor injury than the one I inflicted on myself Sunday. The tip of my left index finger was ripped open. I bled some, but the problem is more in writing over long stretches. Yesterday I wrote a fairly long post, but only produced 1,000 words (half of my daily goal) for my novel. Today, I’m giving the blog a rest so I can force my way through the pain to 2,000 words.

This is my life. I injure myself in stupid ways. Of course since that’s a belief I hold about myself, any evidence to the contrary produces dissonance. Hmmm.

    When I recommended you get a food processor, I should have also instructed you to not jam your fingers into it and turn it on.

      That’s exactly what my personal injury attorney said. Expect some mail with words to that effect from him shortly.
