Today, I was making some chicken salad for my lunch and decided to add some chopped almonds and grapes to it. I just purchased a new knife and decided to use it to chop the almonds. I had chopped several and it was going quite well until I felt that tell tale pain. You know the one of the knife cutting skin!
I then looked down to see it starting to turn red. It got really, really red. I went into the bathroom to get a bandage for it. I cleaned it and then bandaged it up. I put the bandage on tight and went back to the chicken salad. As I started to cut I saw much more red again! I realized that I had placed the tightened bandage below the cut and was squeezing out the red stuff. OMG!
Back to the bathroom I go to clean it again and then re-bandage it. I put two on this time to be sure I had it covered. One over top and one around. Finally, I was good and no red was visible. I then inspected the chicken salad that was in progress to see if I dropped any in it. It was all clear.
Out came a fresh knife, I cut up the grapes and when it was done it was perfection! I had a chicken salad sandwich recently on raisin bread and it was so yummy, so I made my chicken salad on raisin bread, too! It was yummy.
After my ordeal with the knife, I remembered this classic skit from SNL…enjoy! In case it does not embed properly, you can use the link above.
