Ouch!

Ok I was being stupid!

I was showing my son how I could flip the BBQ flipper and catch it by the handle.
Then I decided to show off and try 2 revolutions in 'the flip'. Well instead I caught the edge of the 'blade'.

I am now at urgent care waiting for stitches.

Actually he was kind of grossed out.
There was lots of blood and it went down to the bone.
I am fine just feeling stupid
Annoyed with myself cuz now I am wasting the afternoon sitting in waiting rooms when it is bright and sunny out. .

A few years back, I was in the ER with my grandmother. In the curtain room next door was a guy who somehow grabbed the end of a running hedger trimmer. We lost count of the number of doctors who laughed at him for it and those who came in simply to see the wound for the sake of seeing it.

He was a one-man show.

BBQ Flipper

If your BBQ flipper can cut you to the bone, time for a different flipper. Hope you get back to camping soon.

That's too bad. It must have been one hell of a sharp BBQ Tool Of Death. My flippers are relatively benign. Good luck and heal up soon. BTW, don't try chain saw juggling.
