I Prefer……

I prefer not to get stabbed in my finger with a knife. Whether or not I wanted it, it happened anyway. I was happily cutting my tomato when the next thing I know the knife goes through it and into my finger. I was holding the tomato in the air in one hand and cutting from the top to the bottom in the other.  Food safety tip: If you are going to cut something, lay it down on a cutting board or something solid.

I ran cold water on my finger until it stopped bleeding. I thought I heard a little laughter coming from my tomato or even the knife. But that’s ok, lesson learned. I saw just how easy it is to get hurt on a simple act. But the tomato was very good along with my cottage cheese. When I move on to cucumbers, I’ll remember to go slow and easy with a knife.     via Daily Prompt: Prefer
