The Anti-Bucket List

As most people are aware, a bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you die. I have started one, but I also think an anti-bucket list is just as important. This would be a list of things you have no desire to waste your time on, so you can focus on your actual bucket list. Here’s my list so far:

  1. Sky dive
  2. Bungee jump
  3. Remove a large chunk of flesh from my body

UH OH I MESSED UP. While cutting vegetables yesterday for a large batch baking session, the knife slipped and cut a chunk off my thumb. I didn’t take a picture, partially because the blood on my hands would have made it a challenge, but mostly due to my respect for you minions. I doubt you want to see the inner workings of my thumb, plus that seems oddly private.

Hubby of course instantly raced to the rescue. He was calm and comforting, and has even checked on me a bunch today. I think he’s getting used to my catastrophic injuries. He should probably just enroll in a first aid class, just to be safe.

Currently, I’m walking around with a giant bandage on my thumb, unwillingly approving of everything, and attempting to get my work done like Radar O’Reilly on MASH. (I know how you kids love your topical references! Stay tuned for more fresh as a daisy pop culture jokes!) So far I’m surviving with the loving care of my Hubby and my buddy Franzia. No one else seems surprised or sympathetic. When I tell people what happened they give me a look that says “It was only a matter of time”. It’s hard not to be insulted, but I see their point. Feel free to send me sympathy gifts.

    Sorry you almost sliced your hand off 😦

    For a sympathy gift maybe I should send you a hard hat or safety goggles or something…

      I want to get some of those chain mail gloves for shucking oysters, but I think people would laugh at me for being over-cautious.
