I had a bit of unexpected (and unwanted) excitement yesterday. I cut two fingers on the blade of the paper cutter at work. I had to go to the emergency room where I waited for over an hour reading American Psycho as I held a piece of bloody gauze over my wounds. I ended up having to get three stitches on the little finger of my right hand as well as a tetanus shot. Dear me. It hurts pretty bad today but nothing I can’t handle.

This afternoon I got a call that the receptionist who works my shift 4 days a week quit so starting next week I’ll be working four days a week rather than three, which will be nice. It will give me a bit of extra $$$$ (which I need as I impulse bought the complete works on Bret Easton Ellis on my credit card) but I’ll still have enough time off to run errands for my grandmother and take care of stuff around the house.

I'm okay, at this point it just aches a little and I can't really bend the little finger on my right hand which is a pain in the neck for typing. How'd you manage to get wounded in the forehead? I had to get six stitches over my eye about 16 years ago when my little brother accidentally hit me in the face with a golf club (I was being his caddy and stood too close).

I was really ill, my blood pleasure when dangerously low and I fainted in the bathroom, when I woke up I found out I had knocked down the sink with my forehead.

When I was a child, I slippered on the McDonald's playground and struck my head on the same place, so now I have to scars, one on the top of the other, over my left eyebrow.

Oh yes, and I got shot when I was 14; the bullet went through my leg without touching bone nor nerves, I was lucky, fat legs helped me for once.

That's awful. I've passed out a couple times (especially back when I was anorexic) but luckily I never injured myself falling.

How did you get shot?

It was a stray bullet, I was standing on the line of a drugstore a Thursday afternoon and a robbery was on progress on the store across the street. Police did nothing about it.

That's horrible, I'm glad you're okay.

Well, as Miguel Angel-Face says in Miguel Ángel Asturias' The President "That is the life in the tropics!"

Thanks, but now and then I ask myself what would had happen if I haven't been so lucky...
