It was interesting trying to explain my logic to the doctor. On the plus side, I already had painkillers in my system.

Is it bad that I laughed out loud at that?

No, I have not severely injured myself while crafting. My DH did...he cut off the tip of his finger wood working. It wasn't a lot, but it obviously hurt like heck.

My 4 yr old tried to sew through her finger when she was playing with the machine when she wasn't supposed to.
