In my right hand between my index and middle finger knuckles. One of them is already tearing and I can barely do anything with my right hand. Shame I'm not amidextrous.

aw...that's a bummer. :( I hate stitches. I always get them for doing real dumb things...like running into my brother's bike from behind and flying over the handlebars, or from running into walls...twice...lol, not fun.
But hey, look at the bright side! You'll have a nice manly scar.

ouchies... what happened?
if you practice you can be ambidextrous! i found that out when i started playing guitar, i would practice writing with my left hand so i would have more strength and coordination and now (well actually i haven't done it in a while so i don't know) i am ambidextrous.
it's a good skill to have i suppose. *random*

I was washing the dishes and I broke a glass while I was cleaning the inside of it, FIRMLY, so it cut deep. No cool story, sorry :P

well, it's better than most stitches stories. It seems most people get stitches because they're doing something dumb on purpose. You got them as a result of brute physical labor. Hurt on the workplace. I applaud you!

I'm praying for your hand to heal, Seth.

Our Overall Favorite has not been in the best of moods lately. I was worried you might have lost it and put your fist through something!;D

I'll show this thread next time I'm forced to wash dishes. Considering I tend to overreact to little things, this will be perfect.

On a different note, I hope you're feeling better. Stitches suck.

I just saw the movie Glass House: A Good Mother and the main character cuts herself really badly while washing dishes. Not because she broke a glass but because her foster mother filled the sink with broken glasses. :P See? You can always look at the bright side of things! I hope your hand gets better quickly.

i am phobic of broken glass. i always ask my mom to clean it up if i break something. still. (i'm 18 & in college... well i guess she can't clean it here but we don't have any glass so it's okay. but if i'm at home.)

I still have a scar from it, BAH! And it looks retarded too because the stitches kept tearing. I should have just gone with Steristrips or something. Then I'd have a cooler scar, not a messed-up spotted one. And they said this WOULDN'T scar much *rolls eyes*

stitches arent fun. but i have a very manly scar; i was at karate, sparring, and i got kicked in the chin and my chin busted open so now i have a huge scar there. and of corse, the next night was when my (now ex)gf's parents met me for the first time.......

and i got stitches from busting my chin open on the side of a pool. not fun. i was like 6. lots of crying :azn: but i have two scars on my chin now so thats cool.

ugh. I hate stitches. Once I had to get stitches, and the doctor said it wouldn't hurt(they had given me a local), and surprise surprise. It hurt. Badly. I felt it every time she stuck the needle into my skin, and when she pulled it out.
pain.

I felt the full thing, and the started the stitches before the local took effect. Fun. Made me nauseous and dizzy. blah
