I started thinking about the odd accidents that have happened to my fingers, for some reason. It started (as far as I remember) with being bitten by a swan when I was a toddler. Then my brother
When Caitlin was little my niece Anji sent me a paper that had her own handprint in paint with Caitlin's handprint on top. I compared and mine was very similar to Anji's. Although my sisters have little pointy-fingered girly hands I have more spatulate fingers and what always looked like boys' hands to me. Very useful hands.
*once at my second job as a teenager, and I had to go to my stupid supervisor's boss to get taken to a doctor (8 stitches), once with a machete.
**when I went to my mother's house to find she'd had a party and I was cleaning her house for her - haha - washing a glass and it did a nice artery (or anyway it did a pulsing squirt) cut.
