It is the HAND and fingers.
Obviously, but always taken for granted.
I found this out the very very very very very painful way last Monday.
I slipped and fell on my butt outside the house due to slippery floor after the drizzle.
Hurt my hand while trying to cushion the fall and experienced the most excruciating throbbing pain.
Bum is ok (probably I got fat bum as cushion :) but look at my hand.
As if it is not bad enough, this is my right hand, my working hand.
I'd be out of the wire jewelry action for at least 2 or 3 weeks or maybe a month.
Can't hold the pliers anymore.
Any pressure on that Mount of Venus will inflict pain...huhuhu...
- Be extra careful when walking or running on wet floor.
- Don't rush, walk slowly.
- Wear slippers/shoes with good rubber sole (mine is botak - bald)
- Listen to dear hubby! :) don't be stubborn! When he says "don't do" then he may have the premonition...the story - I insisted on making a small rack (carpentry) although he was against it. The fall happened when I went to the back to look for the last piece of aluminium. In the end, hubby finished off the little rack.
- Anymore safety tips? I you have, feel free to share in the comment.
There you are.
No matter what, Hand is not the only important tool.
The eyes, ears, nose, feet, teeth, etc. are all important.
So, do take care.
