Well I thought I might as well share this since there is no one around and i Can't exactly call anyone to get some sympathy. I am in waiting & watching mode, killing some time, typing with 1 hand while (the fun part) my other hand is holding a towel tightly around my tongue (see why I can't phone anyone?) This towel in mouth thing is great if you like gagging a lot, highly effective for that take my word for it. I am hoping I can get my tongue to stop bleeding, A google says if it doesn't stop after holding it for 45 minutes to get help. I think I'm on 25 minutes or there abouts.
It had better stop given I am a giant wus when it comes to taking myself to the hospital (the small clinics and such being closed at this time of night) and I have never ever had stitches nevermind on a place like a tongue...that has got to hurt right? Nope, this has to stop (she says pressing the towel even harder).
I was eating and from I don't know where there was a crunchie sound which pasta shouldn't have...glass :eek: . By the time I realized it was too late, I had a nice lengthwise cut about and inch long and pretty deep. I'll just say that my robe is probably only suitable for some grizzly halloween costume now. Amazing how much damage that cut did, there must be a lot of blood vessels in a tongue. I guess I'm lucky I didn't swallow it as it's quite a long sharp piece (about .5" X .25"). I am also glad I found it rather than the dog when she gets the left over bits too. Gee that would have been bad.
I would sure like to know where that glass came from. I know it wasn't in my pot and if it came in the pasta.... I am going to be really nervous about that from now on. Sheesh, how can you spot clear glass in things like pasta? Maybe avoiding the smaller types and sticking with spaghetti since glass should be noticable with that?
Oh well, I sure do feel like a dignified ultra chic person sitting here with my towel I can tell you. I don't want to have to go get stitches just on principal. How would I drive with a towel hanging out of my mouth? I mean it's a little towel, but it's still kind of noticable. NOpe, just impossible to look cool.
So far, so good...second test and no gushing (which was notthe case after first test I can tell you). Guess I'll keep my fingers crossed (with towel in between) and hope it stays okay. I guess I'll give it another 15 and hope I can put this towel where it belongs.
hmmm an evil thought just occured to me. If I have a cut tongue does that mean I can drink milkshakes for a couple of days and not feel guilty?
