Actually, it was two Saturdays ago now, but who’s keeping track? Anyway, as anyone who follows me on Twitter may know, I had some, well, trouble when a piece broke off of my ceramic salt shaker.

I’m not even kidding. I put glue on the broken ends, stuck them together, and the chipped piece was attached to my finger, not the frigging salt shaker. If there were more panels on my poorly drawn stick figure comic, it would include me sitting at the computer looking up “how to remove crazy glue from skin”. I know you’re supposed to use nail polish remover, but I only had one almost empty bottle. Suffice to say, getting it off was not fun.
If any lesson can be learned from this, it’s don’t use super glue unless you have liberal amounts of acetone in the house. And keep your hand in your pocket when you go out to buy more.
That's not pleasant to do. I glued my thumb and pointer finger together when I was a teenager trying to fix my winged cat statue which my niece had broken (she was five...and snuck into my bedroom). We didn't have access to the internet back then and my parents didn't know how to fix that. So they took me to the doctor. He told us about the nail polish remover. As he got my fingers unstuck.ReplyDelete
And it hurts like heck to tear off anything super-glued to your finger.ReplyDelete
I once super glued my finger to the door while trying to reattach the weather strip on the bottom of the door. I was home alone...no way to get polish remover or anything else...took a while to stop the bleeding...ReplyDelete
I've never had any glue mishaps... yet. (knock on wood)ReplyDelete
Note to self: stay away from super glue...ReplyDelete
I'm constantly glueing my fingers together while trying to fix toys for the kids. Damn plane toys always lose a wing after aggressive playing....ReplyDelete
Good to know!!! I have pure acetone...although I don't know if I have liberal amounts. Glad you got it figured it out!ReplyDelete
I haven't used superglue in ages. I remember it being messy and painful to remove.ReplyDelete
