I injure myself in the funniest ways. I sometimes worry that my somewhat fantastic stories about how exactly I get these boo-boos might someday be seen as a cover up for abuse.
Right now, I've got a numb thumb and bruised up knuckles on two fingers on my right hand. From cracking pecans.
A customer is selling pecans to help fund a mission trip early next year. I bought 5 pounds. I spent most of the evening yesterday cracking just about a third of what I bought. But, I don't actually own a real nutcracker. So, I used the bottle opener on my kitchen shears.
Last year, I got pretty good at using a beer bottle to crack pecans. Maybe the combination of drinking the beer, and using the bottle as a nutcracker will help ease my pain as well as be more effective.
