I Thought I Was a Knife Eater

Actually, I was  just a knife-licker. The trouble is it was brand new and super sharp. And, I bled. I've eaten apple off a sharp knife with no untoward results.

If it had been jelly, I would not have cut myself. But, why would I have a sharp knife in jelly. Of course, it could have been Miracle Whip. I just don't remember because of the searing pain and blood. There was not a lot of blood, but it doesn't take much blood to know you are swallowing blood!

I was trying hard to stay safe. I carefully put the knife between my lips and a little further back. The "further back" was the real problem and source of blood. Carefully, I drew the knife straight out and felt just a twinge, but I kept pulling it between my lips.

Afterwards, I gave a little, low moan; the friend standing here said, "You didn't really cut your mouth, did you?" He shook his head.

The cut hurt for hours, especially every time  I ate or drank anything. The blood stayed for less time but was still strange and distressing.

Don't ever do this! Staying safe could mean not putting a knife in your mouth, way beyond your lips.

    1. Sonya Ann,
      And where were you before I did this?

  2. Somehow that would just seem to be common sense. Ouch!

  3. I am sure I have put a knife in my mouth before, but it would have been when I was very young before I actually remember things. No knives in the mouth, ever! (Actually my mom was such a strict table manner enforcer, we would have gotten the manners lecture way before the safety issue)

    1. Anne,
      I was not at the table. LOL...not a manner issue at this point. And, I was not at the table. Somehow, I would never do this at the table but would away from the table...well, I did.
