Stuck Fast.



I remember someone warning me about Superglue, but I probably wasn't paying attention.

I keep knocking off the round handle on our butter dish, and keep having to glue it on again.

This time I used an already opened tube of Superglue, and the stuff came out of all quarters; there was glue everywhere.

It wasn't long before I realised that my right thumb was stuck to the tube; and I mean REALLY STUCK. It wouldn't budge.

Of course, Lady Magnon had just taken Bok for a walk, so I was left there, by myself, with my bloody thumb stuck to a tube of glue. Just my luck.

I ended-up just pulling it off; what else could I have done! It took with it a layer of skin, and was quite painful.

I'll pay more attention next time.

You can laugh now!

  1. Oh, no! I'd laugh if I hadn't already had my own battles with superglue and lost.

  2. I keep Superglue around to fix almost anything. It works well but I, also, have been a victim of spillage. My hand has been stuck to it's tube and I have also glued fingers together. Days layer, I find myself still peeling it off me.

    I've heard stories about men going to pee after using superglue...you can imagine the result!😨 So it could have been worse!

  4. You should have kept it attached as the latest fashion accessory.

    1. The end of my thumb (where it was stuck) is now very pink, as opposed to the rest which is 'skin coloured'.

  6. You reminded me of the funny chapter from the Adrian Mole books when he got his nose stuck to a model air plane with superglue. He also said, 'just my luck'.
    Oh dear. I believe nail polish remover can dissolve it.

    1. My 'fountain of all knowledge' had just taken the dog for a walk, so other than walk around for hours with the wretched thing stuck to my thumb, I just pulled it off. Painful.

  8. My ex husband was the first person to arrive at his local hospital, having glued his eyelids together. The staff had received an instruction sheet on how to deal with superglue spillages about an hour before he presented himself.

  10. There was a time when phone boxes were still in use that local youths would put superglue around the ear piece. Put the phone to your ear .. too late ..stuck.

  11. The only thing it works on is skin. It was designed as an emergency wound-closing glue for the military.

  12. Ouch !!! I find it impossible not to get superglue on my fingers when I use it .... it takes ages to wear away !!
    It will only be worth the pain if the handle stays on the butter dish ! XXXX

  13. We know it won't happen to us, the first time.
    I have a nurse friend who keeps a tube handy for small cuts.

  15. Ouch!
    I am painfully reminded of the time I sewed through my finger with the old Singer hand crank sewing machine. The needle went in by the side of the nail and I was chain stitched permanently to the seam of my new frock.
    That hurt too.

  18. Well, guess lots of us have had somewhat similar situations. Maybe you will now keep some fingernail polish remover in the house, even if no one uses fingernail polish.

    Hoping that the butter dish handle is holding on.

    Best wishes.
