My family has a history of mangling or chopping off appendages. My grandfather hit his knee with an axe and it was stiff the rest of his lfe; my dad ground the toes off of one foot in an industrial accident; and my mother lost a finger in a recreational accident. Katie lives in constant fear that I’ll be the next victim.
Yesterday I was working with a borrowed power miter saw. With my family history, I should have realized that Katie wouldn’t find it very funny when I came in from the garage with a towel around a finger and saying I’d had a little accident.
