The dilemmas of grating cheese

Yesterday I sliced my thumbnail with a cheese grater. Was grating cheese, but the block slipped out of my hand and before my brain could react to it, my thumb had already gone down the grater and put a "nice" little opening right up my nail, in part lifting the nail off the nailbed.

Looks not that bad, actually, especially now that it's not bleeding any more, but... geesh it hurts every time the nail catches on something or if I have to push on something with my thumb.

But that's not why I'm writing about it. The reason I'm writing is: every time I pick up the grater now, even if it's just to wash it or put it away in the drawer, my stomach churns. Like, I literally feel a little sick every time I touch the grater.

Now - the kids love cheese, and they love grated cheese on their food. And I do tell myself to just pull up my big girl pants and just grate the damn cheese - soon it'll go away, this automatic reaction of being reminded how painful it was.

But when? For how long do I need to grate the cheese before I don't have to feel sick to my stomach?

First world problem.

  1. Haaa. Selle jaoks on mingi plastikust jublakas oradega, mis juustu hoiab. Ma muuseas kardan samal põhjusel juustunuga - ma olen nii palju kordi sellega endale kuidagi sõrme lõiganud.

    1. Kusjuures mul on see plastikust jubla olemas, aga siis vaja juustu tükkideks lõigata ja veel üks lisa-asi (jubla) pesta... Ja varem pole ju kunagi niimoodi juhtunud...
