In Which I Am Medicating With Wine, So Take THAT Health Care Reform Advocates...
I was all ready to devein the foie gras that had just arrived from Hudson Valley Foie Gras when this happened:
Three eency-weency microscopic hairline fractures in the metacarpals, and some gorgeous bruising and swelling. Nothing serious, and it's already starting to feel better now that the swelling is going down.
Per doctor's orders, I'm keeping it wrapped and not using my left hand until the weekend. In fact, I'm typing this entry with just my right hand, and since it's taking about nine thousand years let's wrap this up and end it on a fun note: use the comments to guess how I broke my hand!!
The person who comes closest wins a packet of Barley Malt Powder and a packet of Malted Milk Powder -- both from Terra Spice -- as well as a packet of juniper berries.
Submit as many guesses as you'd like -- no limits here, folks. Be creative, be specific. Have fun busting my chops, because I deserve it.
Oh, and p.s.? It's not a cooking injury. GO!
