Close call... Sep. 11th, 2005 11:02 pm
Just knocked one of K's extremely sharp knives off the worktop, leaving it stuck point-first in the floor and quivering.

Fortunately, and entirely of its own accord, my bare foot that had been occupying that piece of floor had managed to make its escape in the intervening 0.5 seconds (by my math).

Semi-autonomous limbs have their uses at times...

Oh and K had just been using that knife in preparing roast lamb. Coincidence?

Eek! Glad your foot escaped, whether conciously or not...

Ooo that was lucky! Seems to have been a roast lamb Sunday!

Mmm... Roast lamb...

Ooh, hot pentacle buns. I never would have thought of that.

Yep!
I thought that since Easter was originally a pagan festival, the buns ought to have a connection with that rather than people torturing their supposed saviour to death...
They were also extra-crunchy, as the cross was made with a flour-water dough.

Last year we were refitting my sisters kitchen and she managed to knock a Stanley knife off the worktop as I was working underneath it. It landed on my thigh. Fortunately, it was blunt end first......

I have about a 95% success rate on catching sharp knives I just dropped on my feet. Otherwise I've been lucky and just missed.

Got to be very careful about how you catch them, though ...
