Don’t use a carving knife to carve a pumpkin into a Jack-o’-lantern.
And pay attention to what you’re doing when you do cut into it.
(And no, my thumb did not need stitches. I bled like the proverbial stuck pig, however, and having a half-inch cut on one’s thumb-tip does not help with mothering tasks. I’ve been forbidden to carve any more pumpkins until Pixie is old enough to appreciate it. It probably goes without saying that there isn’t one this year. I didn’t even get the top cut off before I slipped.)Explore posts in the same categories: Journal, Miscellaney, Recreation
