Don’t forget protection.

Occasionally, just like anyone else, I have moments of utter idiocy. One of these moments occurred on Tuesday, while watching Jeopardy. I thought it would be a great idea to make some apple chips. However, I got too excited about the final question and looked at the TV just as I sliced my thumb on the mandolin I was using. Thankfully, stitches were not necessary.

As my job requires me to work with my hands, I was slightly concerned. I do wear latex gloves, but the bandages don’t stay on due to excessive hand washing and glove changes. This proved difficult, until I found this bad boy to shield my injury:

A FINGER CONDOM! Apparently, we had a whole box and I found the last one. I suppose they are technically called “finger sleeves” but where’s the fun in that?

I don’t think I need to explicitly mention all of the uses for these things that popped into my head upon my discovery..

If I’m not mistaken, you can find these at your local Spencer’s Gifts or through a medical supply company. I pick Spencer’s, because they are sure to have better packaging.
