Pipe Dream #7: To Take The Violence Out Of Zesting

I zest lemons a lot. They are useful, and I put lemon zest and juice in things you wouldn’t necessarily suspect, like pancakes. Also, I love pancakes.

Are you ready for a really awesome story?

Ok good.

This is what happened to my fingers the other day when I was zesting a lemon. I put a watermark on the photo in case you were thinking of stealing it. Who wouldn’t want to claim this jamming art and frame it on their wall?

And this is after about three weeks of healing. The microplaner gouged me real deep. And there was blood. And my knuckle was weirdly distorted.

Aren’t you glad you heard that story?

Ok, you can go and read someone else’s cool blog now.

    You should keep some Tea Tree oil handy.
    You wouldn’t get the white pussy looking scabs is you used it right away after gouging your delicate little hands. But don’t drink it to console yourself. Use cooking wine instead. incidently the cooking wine can be used on cuts as well. ;-p :-)
