Medical hint #22

When you cut your index finger while you're chopping cabbage, and your finger gets all puffy and nasty because the bandaid stays wet -- the cut swells and turns white except for the bloody slash in the middle -- you can get around the bandage problem (which may not be a problem for you if you never wash dishes or wash your face) by putting superglue on the cut instead. It seals the sore quite nicely.

This technique also works when you gash your middle finger chopping kohlrabi.
