I’ve been quite careless with my fingers recently. Either that or I’ve been coming into contact with sharp objects far more frequently than usual.
Today it was a can of tuna fish. Granted, I was rushing with trying to get the tuna out of the can, so that contributed to my accident. Now I’m not sure whether I can ever look at a tin can the same way ever again (this is the first time I’ve cut myself on the opened lid of a can). It’s like getting a paper cut, only about twice as painful. Usually, I think cans are a great way to store food, especially foods that are perishable. I suppose you could also use it as a weapon or tool if you really need one. The downside is that you have to make sure you have a can opener, or a knife that’s sharp enough. How many cartoons/shows/movies have you seen of marooned survivors who have enough to eat in cans, only they can’t get to the food due to a lack of the right tools? Houston, we have a Problem.
