A Word to the Wise
In a freakish minor mishap of the sort that could only happen to me, I discovered the slicing power of hard pretzels. We were on our way out the door, and I realized I hadn't eaten much. I grabbed a couple of multi-grained hard pretzels (hey, they're healthy and taste good too!) and dropped them into a baggie. With paraphernalia in one arm, I broke the hard pretzel with the other hand.
It was the pain that first alerted me to the Situation. The pretzel had sliced my thumb in two places!
Back into the house I went to search for the anti-biotic ointment which was not where it belonged (ooooooh, those kids!). Settling for iodine solution, I doctored myself and was on my way, once again nibbling on my hard pretzels but a bit more respectfully.
So a word to the wise----when eating hard pretzels, beware; they may bite back!
