After very careful inspection, I am pleased to report that Hot Stuff's hmm-hmmm is doing just fine. Oh, his leg is ok too.
NO STITCHES. Just a lot of irrigation and some super glue.... you think I'm kidding, don't you?
Much thanks to Ladybug for the term "manties" (man-panties) which still has me laughing.
Hot Stuff gave me a very animated explanation of everything that occurred.... I'd like to try to interpret some of his descriptions with words here, if I may....
"The knife was a little dull from cutting through that deer head so I really gave 'er the onion and...." (This means he really tried hard.... I don't know where this phrase came from but you've gotta try using it at the next family get-together.... )
"...then in my overzealousness ...." (Yes, he really uses words like "overzealousness" because the man has, like, eleventy-million college degrees & he's a big fat show-off.... And yes, I did ask if the knife stuck in like when you flick it at a tree stump. It did.)
"...I sort of stuck myself by my right knee..." (No where NEAR his hmm-hmmm.)
".... but the nurse (a man) was cool about it. He sort of held the gown out in front of him and let me take it so he didn't have to see my junk....." (Does this one require interpretation??)
So, people, let this be a lesson.... don't cut towards yourself.... ever.
