Feeling like SIU

I was trying to open a coconut yesterday and the knife slipped. All in all, it was a minor cut that bled more than I thought it should - I know I could have done worse after reading about some of her exploits.

I was calling something NSFW when I did it. Or maybe me, I don't remember. I did remember how I don't like the site of blood though, especially mine.

btw, you are supposed to put the LIME in the coconut, not the BLOOD. Please tell me you did not drink it all up.

I stuck the pointy end of scissors into the tip of my finger while opening a new bike the other day. I Siu'd my finger. Ow.

My sister is a total klutz, and I usually think "that's something she would have done" when I do something to hurt myself. But not this time, Siu was the person I thought of then - but in a good way!

I haven't cut myself for a couple of weeks now. And it's never on purpose.
