Collée Stuck on ME!!!

J’ai échappé un support en porcelaine pour papier hygiénique cet après midi. Quelle joie! La céramique du plancher est intacte. Regardant parterre, je découvre quelques morceaux. Je suis à la recherche d’une solution rapide.

How do accidents occur? One minute I have a piece of porcelain in my hands the next minute it is crashing to the floor. My first reaction was to check whether the bathroom floor was intact. Yes it is! On I go to solve the mess. But instead find myself in more of a fix.

La colle ‘Crazy’ est bien nommée.  Après avoir cherché pour un outil pour l’ouvrir dans l’absence d’une aiguille, j’ai finalement trouvé de quoi pour percer le tube. J’ai bien lu les instructions et je pesais doucement, mais hélas, le trou était trop large. La colle est sortie rapidement sur la porcelaine mais aussi sur moi. Avant de réagir, les 3èmes et 4èmes doigts de ma main droite étaient collés, complètement collés.

Crazy glue does bond…immediately on contact. Having great difficulty opening a new tube of crazy glue, I went on the search for an instrument that could be inserted to open the tube, not having a needle at the cottage. After many trials, including using a cork screw, the tube was open. Alas the opening was too large and a gentle push produced a massive amount of glue, some of which came in contact with the fingers of my right hand. Suddenly the 3rd and 4th fingers were joined in a position such that my finger tips were lined up. PANIC. I re-read the instructions and began soaking my hand. As the area was about 2.5 cm, I ignored recommendations and began distracting the 2 surfaces under the water.  The bond ceded!! I spread those fingers as widely as possible and after a while, with the first aid cream applied, the discomfort ended. My relief encouraged me to take a time out, have some supper and then settle with a book. Sometimes, relaxation requires a nudge.

La recommandation de tremper dans l’eau était gagnante. Maintenant, sagement, j’abandonne le travail, je  passe au souper et un livre- la belle détente après l’après-midi.
