I was cutting onions and the knife slipped and sliced open my finger. It didn't bleed at first but then it started to gush. I was almost in shock as I watched the blood drip down into the metal basin of the sink. I wasn't sure what to do.
It's silly, but the first thing I thought to do was call a friend to help me finish up the soup. Then I thought, "Maybe I'll have to go to the hospital." That made me feel faint. I did a quick Google search because that's just what you do when blood is spilling out of your body. I tightly wrapped a band-aid around the finger and help my hand up while I awkwardly chopped up the rest of the onions and broke down the chicken. Fortunately my finger stopped bleeding after a while, but I think it's possible that I'll have a nasty scar. Could be worse.
On a positive note, the soup wasn't awful, and every time I ask someone, "Do you want to see my scar?" I'll be able to flick them off while I do it. Just trying to look on the bright side. :')
