All actions involving profuse use of my right thumb are officially on hiatus until my thumb stops hurting. I sliced the side of it open on my brand new shiny mandolin (of death). Don’t pity me (ok, a little is just fine).. it’s my own fault for not using the guard thingy.
One tetanus shot, a profuse amount of novocaine, and some cauterization later… I have become clear on a couple of things.
1) I am not coordinated enough to use a mandolin well.
2) Mandolins are freaking SHARP
3) My knife skills are questionable but my mandolin skills are even worse.
