Don't Eat Stale Bagels


I'm an idiot.

Every now and then I buy a dozen bagels and leave them in the refrigerator. As the week wears on, they get tougher and tougher to cut. (they also get tougher to eat but the microwave soggies them up nicely). Today was the last bagel so I thought I'd get the sharpest knife. It was like sawing plastic which is why it slipped and smacked me in the left wrist.

I didn't feel a thing but the skin sprung apart like a screaming mouth. By the time the blood poured out, I had it wrapped in a yard of gauze.

It's sutured up now and doesn't look like I'll need stitches but it took most of the day to get it in a safe place. And I'll look like a suicide attempt for a couple of weeks.

Don't become a statistic. Please throw out your bagels.

Speaking of frozen bagels......buy the dozen, cut them in 1/2 & freeze them. when you want one, defrost it- it works much better than trying to hack through the stale bagel.

maybe mom still has that electric knife somewhere.....

get better!!!
