Since I go to the beach every couple of days to fill orders for my custom beach writing business, my car usually looks like I've been on vacation at the beach for 2 weeks. There is enough sand to build a sandcastle ground into my carpet.
Yesterday, I decide to clean it. I go out with the garbage bag and Windex and make the inside all pretty. I attempted to vacuum it, but the filter on the dyson was full so I had minimal suction. You need serious suction to get sand out of a carpet. At that point my younger son asked me to drive him to his friends house. I figure since I'm going out anyway, I'll hit the do-it-yourself car wash & vacuum out the car.
Drop the child at his friends and head over to the car wash. I pull in and there is plenty of open spots so I pull in and get out of the car.
And close the car door on my right thumb.
I saw stars and grabbed my right thumb with my left hand. I stay like that for a few moments and slowly open my hand to check out the damage.
That's when I saw BLOOD! :faint:
I have napkins in the car but nothing to really clean the wound so I wrap it up in napkins and head home. I'm mad at myself because I wanted to do a little shopping after cleaning my car, but I can't go out with BLOOD all over my hands! LOL
Of course I had to take a picture of damage. Not only because I take pictures of everything, but also I needed to ask everyone I know if I needed stitches LOL General opinion is that I did not need stitches. So if you are brave, click the link below.
I'm leaving the picture as a link for the squeamish (like me)My Injury
It's still sore, but thankfully not broken.
