June 23, 2008 – Sliced Finger
Today when I went to retrieve my radio from its mount on the dash I sliced my finger. There is a circular, steel, button like looking object on the back of my mic (the part of the radio that you speak into) that fits into a steel receiver on the dash. Over the years after repeated friction between the two parts the receiver had developed a razor sharp edge. In my haste I misaligned the two parts and guided my finger across the receivers edge. It was a pretty good slice actually. This was followed by an array of expletives that was as colorful as the people that work here.
