Today started out so well. LOL Pat woke me up from a dream. It seems I was dreaming of a black, long haired goat. It had the softest hair! It was also sitting on my chest and I was pushing it off! I have silly dreams sometimes.
I got a little bit of work done today. Not as much as I would have liked. I washed a load of clothes and had a load in the dryer. I heard the dryer go off but I did not get up to check it. In a bit I hear Pat calling me from the bedroom. He needed some underwear. LOL That was the load in the dryer. I go and get them and find that they were not dry all the way. HUMMM I thought. I hope my dryer is not going out. I turn it back on and hold my hand to the vent outside and nothing! Ut oh, stopped up hose. I pull the dryer out and take the hose off and dump it. Nope nothing there. I turn it on and nothing blows out. I turn it off and reach down to see if I can feel some lint. That was when the light bulb burst and all my bright ideas became real stupid ones. I hold on to the dryer and stick my hand in the hole, somehow I mashed the start button and the dryer took off. When it took off so did the top of my finger! Somewhere floating around in my dryer is a little tip of my finger. OUCH! I know better than that. I clean the hose and back out every year. I always unplug it. BUT nooooooo, not this time. So now as a result, I have a chunk missing from my pinkie. Lucky for me it is just a hunk of meat and not the whole tip bone and all. It will take a bit to heal. It won't or can't close up. It will have to regrow finger there. It hurt worse when I washed it than it did when I cut it. My lesson for the day, which I will never forget again is....ALWAYS UNPLUG DRYER BEFORE WORKING ON IT! I did finish cleaning out the back of the dryer. I grabbed a clean sock and stopped the bleeding and then took the back off and got the pile of lint out of it and put the back on again.
I guess I won't be washing dishes for a few days!
