Well I had a bizarre incident today. I cut myself shaving this morning. Right where the lower lip turns to skin. I mean I said a bad word but no biggie. I put a little scrap of toilet paper on it and no worries.
An hour later I am at work in the restroom and saw that bloody tissue on my lip and said oh yeah lets get that off. I reached up and peeled that tissue paper off my lip and HOLY CRAP! Blood starts streaming down my chin! I grabbed a paper towel and dabbed at it and it just keeps coming and coming!
Ok, toilet paper worked once, lets get some more. I walked past the urinals to the first stall and grabbed a piece of TP walked back to the mirror and stuck it on. It was instantly saturated and dripping. I also noticed that in that few steps to the stall and back I now had a sliver dollar sized blood spot on my shirt!
I finally left the TP on to act as a clotting membrane and held the paper towel there just to keep from messing up my shirt any more.
Man who would have thunk that a little shaving cut could bleed like that?
I am NOT taking that TP off again! I still have it on right now and it will stay there until it falls off!
So as usual this episode did a memory look up in my organic I-pod and pulled up a tune. Anyone remember Supertramp and the tune Dreamer?
For the rest of the day I was singing:
Such a silly little bleeder!
Put your hands to your mouth- oh no!
Here is the real thing if you don't remember...
