Smooth move, Ex-Lax

Got up this morning to make coffee and spilled some of the grounds on my wife’s new mandolin. Thinking that I’d better not leave it like that, I took it over to the sink to brush it off…

Those of you who know what a mandolin is are already wincing, aren’t you? You know that I almost sliced my finger off.

Yeah, I don’t mean this kind of mandolin. I mean this kind of mandolin.


Proving once more that I should never do anything (including making coffee) without first having coffee. (It’s hard to type without your middle finger, too.)

    Ouch! I did that slicing tomatoes once. Not fun. Nothing like bad-aided finger tips for a week. Looking a little MJ-ish…lol

    First I was thinking, “I didn’t know Mrs. Solonor played mandolin.” Then I was thinking, “He spilled coffee… ON A MANDOLIN??? And he’s going to RINSE IT OFF IN THE SINK????”

    I’m sorry about the finger nearly being sliced off, but very glad it wasn’t an instrument.

    I thought it was an instrument too! Ouch! But good for you for trying to clean it up. My husband probably would have left it there. Coffee is of utmost importance to him.

    Diet Coke. Much safer (finger-wise — unless you slam your hand in the fridge).

  11. jadedju says:

    ACK! That’s exactly why I don’t own one of those. I don’t have a single friend–not one–who wants to be served slices of my fingertips.

  12. Linkmeister says:

    Yep. I’ve done that even using it as it’s supposed to be used. Now I just use very sharp knives with long handles and blades.
