I know. I host shouldn't be late for his own event.
I had it all planned for the week. Since work wouldn't let me have my way, I was going to post my Lasang Pinoy entry yesterday, May the 6th(May 7th in Pinas) in the evening. But as fate would have it, a taste of the unforeseen happened. I was skinning and slicing a pineapple when my super sharp Henckels serrated knife lost its way and sliced through the tip of my precious unblemished left middle finger as well. It deeply cut the flesh and took a portion of the fingernail too. Blood spurted out that I had to put pressure on it and run it through cold running water until the bleeding stopped. It finally took three heavy duty "band aids" wound tightly to stop the bleeding. By measure, it is just a small wound but the gap was deep and the blade pierced the most sensitive part of the hand-- the fingertip. I tried putting a "finger condom" over that dirty finger but had to take it off later as it was constricting blood flow.Gosh. The pain yesterday was really awful. It is a lot better today. The bleeding has stopped. A single band aid keeps it protected and hopefully it will heal heal fast. I could have the wound in a less functional part of my not-so-sacred body.
That small accident has led into another uncomfortable situation. I am one of those rare species on earth who types on the keyboard with four fingers--the middle and the index fingers of both hands. Now, I can type with with only three f_ _ _ _ _ _ _ ones not to mention a super slow God-given WPM typing skill and a Lasang Pinoy 17 Round Up coming up.
In an hour, after bringing my little kindergarten girl to school, I am gong to see Mr. Medicine Man to have this finger checked. Tonight I am going to post my entry and start the Lasang Pinoy 17 round-up. Slowly but surely with a dirty finger on the left hand dangling in midair cursing the nightingales I will finish my tasks.
So pasensya na mga Mare at pare, for the delay.
