on the use of CA glue in place of bandages…

I had an accident (kitchen, not shop) several years back, I nearly took off the tip of my thumb. The knife was sharp, and I never felt a thing. Anyhow, this was on a saturday afternoon, and I ended up waiting a few hours for the doctor to basically cover the tip of my finger with glue, and wrap it in gauze to keep it dry (and look like a much more impressive injury). If not for the tetanus booster, I could have done the same thing myself (which I did a few years later – same thumb – to no ill effect).

So, I managed to get out of cooking a “thank you dinner” for my parents, In-laws, and grandparents for all their help over the previous 6 months with our house. Fortunately, they didn’t seem to mind taking over in the kitchen (my domaign, not generally my wifes) cooking their own thank-you meal.
