After a few hours busking in town yesterday (it's early hours on Sunday in the UK now!), got home and went to make a sandwich. Knocked a glass bottle over on the worktop, caught it but not before it smashed a glass. Caught the glass as well but cut my left middle finger in two places. Thought 'oh well' until I bent my finger and the cut vertically across the middle joint opened up to reveal a very deep gash and copious amounts of blood... Normally I'd just stick a plaster on it but I could see Australia through the hole, so off to Accident and Emergency. One X-Ray later, the male nurse cleaned it up (no glass fragments) and said he might get away with sterile strips and bandage - if the cut had been the other way, then stitches would have definitely been needed. Strangely enough turned out he knew my old sax teacher - everyone knows my teacher round these parts - he's ubiquitous! But the problem is, now I'm permanently flipping my middle finger and I have a village fete to play at for charity, this coming Monday being a bank holiday in the UK. Now I can't bend the finger without it hurting like a sonfofagun and if I do the wound opens up a bit. This is of course my C2 finger but I tested it and can just about play it without bending too much but it still hurts. But... the show must go on especially for charity!
