Lame Evening

Last night was such a bummer. It was Paul’s night to be in charge of dinner. He was making us the yummiest Mediterranean Fajitas {basically fajitas with hummus and feta} when he cut the end of his finger really bad. He didn’t really want to go to the ER but the piece that was cut started turning white so I made him go. We got checked in and it took forever and then all of a sudden five different ambulances came in with people super sick and dying. Since Paul had the wussiest wound out of everyone we were put on the back burner for almost 3 hours. We couldn’t even really complain because the other people were dying and we would’ve had to go into one of the other rooms and said, “Um, Paul’s finger is really hurting can you ignore that 65 year old man with chest pains for just a moment?” They finally helped us when they needed the room for another patient. They stitched him up and the good news Paul will be fine. We went home and I had to finish making the fajitas {perhaps it was all a ploy to get out of cooking?) And after all that we sat down to watch The Office only to find it was a stupid rerun. It really was a lame night.

    why does Paul’s spotlight on your blog get a million comments, but your carefully researched posts get one or two on a good day? I guess that you must be married to one charming mother f’er. PS. If the finger starts to turn black that means that Paul is gonna die, so make love a million times and then give up. I love you both. Like the way Jesus loves sheep.

    Sorry Jordan, but once again Paul’s non-toughness shines through.

    If Paul was really tough he would have demaded he get help first at the hospital.

    If he was really really tough he would have stitched it up himself.

    If he was really really really tough he would have just finished the job and cut the remainder of his finger off.

    And if he was as tough as you have often suggested, he wouldn’t have been cooking in the first place.

    glad he is ok.

    i am pissed about the rerun of grey’s! I rushed around all day and night to get baby and house in order for a RERUN! Not quite the equal drama that led to your disappointment, but I hear ya.

    oh man, the tips of fingers are the worst. i feel for him that he had to sit for so long with such pain (i’ve had the unfortunate experience as well).

    so my first job when i was like 14 was at Los Hermanos in st. george. my second evening there, the manager had a party to go to so he left me to lock everything up; a 14-year old kid, second day on the job(other than spray-painting curbs, paper-routes and ironing clothes at the porter’s) and I’m left in charge to close up shop. NOTE: if you’re still not convinced that was too early in the job/in my life to be locking up a whole store, let me tell you that my mom picked me up when i was done because i couldn’t yet drive.
    ANYWAY, while working there I worked with Stan Horlacher and Darrin Wilson, two awesome dudes, but this story is about Darrin. Darrin was a cook(i was only a dishwasher – and a closer of the restaurant) and would prep all the food; one time he was throwing a big knife up in the air and spinning it around, and then catching the handle. He was getting good at it and like any 7th grader didn’t think through it and decided to see if he could spin it TWO times before he caught it; he ended up spinning it like 2-1/2 times and catching the blade end. hand bleeding like crazy, an order for a burrito came in; without even thinking about it Darrin reached in the shredded cheddar cheese and everything else you do when making a burrito, using his CUT hand. GROSS. Don’t blame Darrin though, blame the guy who hired a bunch of 7th graders to run his restaurant, that’s what you get.
