The offending instrument.
Last night, I decided to try my hand at this ridiculously yummy pie my sister made at Christmas. It has four ingredients:
- low fat (or fat free!) Cool Whip (one container)
- low fat cream cheese (one block)
- Butterfinger bars, crushed (I used 3)
- a pre-made graham cracker crust
So I was using the lovely immersion blender above to mix the Cool Whip and cream cheese. The mixture was stuck in the blade area, so I turned the thing off (just unpressing the button on the side) and stuck my finger in to get out all the yumminess. Apparently, my finger reactivated the blade, because a gory scene ensued.
I will spare you pictures of my blood-spattered kitchen and sutured finger, but here's what I'm working with now:
Only two stitches, but those suckers hurt. Thankfully, the doc gave me painkillers. Be careful with blenders, people!!
In other news, today is the LAST DAY to enter my HTC OneX giveaway! Make sure you enter, cause this phone is awesome. The camera is so good that you can see my actual fingerprints in the picture I took of my stitches. ;) It's really easy to use, too, and so light and thin! Win the phone for yourself or as an awesome gift for someone you love. Enter here.
