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!
Oh, no! I'd laugh if I hadn't already had my own battles with superglue and lost.ReplyDelete
It happens to many!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Sometimes it works too well.Delete
I wouldn't laugh...it's too painful. Sorry that happened to you!ReplyDelete
I've heard stories about men going to pee after using superglue...you can imagine the result!😨 So it could have been worse!
I don't even want to think about that Jennifer!Delete
You should have kept it attached as the latest fashion accessory.ReplyDelete
I kept it attached just long enough to take a silly photo.Delete
Sorry, but you did make me smile! Hope the thumb is not too sore!ReplyDelete
The end of my thumb (where it was stuck) is now very pink, as opposed to the rest which is 'skin coloured'.Delete
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'.ReplyDelete
Oh dear. I believe nail polish remover can dissolve it.
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.Delete
Snigger....those ones that have been used and closed always burst out all over the place. Haven't glued a finger.....yet.ReplyDelete
Moral: always use an unopened tube!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Good lord. That sounds really nasty.And here am I complaining about my thumb!Delete
By the way, how is your toothache? I hope you got things fixed!Delete
Thank you, it has worn off, it is only because I sleep with my teeth clenchedDelete
Never used it, but forwarned is forarmed - so thank you for that.ReplyDelete
It's vicious stuff Weaver; use it at your peril.Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Or on a loo seat!Delete
The only thing it works on is skin. It was designed as an emergency wound-closing glue for the military.ReplyDelete
Well, I can confirm that it works.Delete
Ouch !!! I find it impossible not to get superglue on my fingers when I use it .... it takes ages to wear away !!ReplyDelete
It will only be worth the pain if the handle stays on the butter dish ! XXXX
It's stayed on, so far!Delete
We know it won't happen to us, the first time.ReplyDelete
I have a nurse friend who keeps a tube handy for small cuts.
I had the stuff all over my fingers before, but have never actually been stuck to something.Delete
I always stick things skew with it and, no fingers stuck. Yet.ReplyDelete
Greetings Maria x
Never a dull moment here.Delete
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.
Ooooh, that sounds very nasty. I once nailed myself to a piece of wood!Delete
Next time pee on them, they will come apart without removing your skin.ReplyDelete
Did Donald Trump give you this advice?Delete
Super glue should come with a few pair of latex gloves!ReplyDelete
and a health warning.Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Hoping that the butter dish handle is holding on.
Yes, the butter dish is OK,until the next time.Delete
Fresh pineapple juice is also a solvent.ReplyDelete
