I decided to make pea soup, especially because the stuff I bought a few days ago for it (potatoes, carrots, etc.) would not have kept too much longer. But I learned the hard way that it's a bad idea to cut carrots with a large knife and a small attention span. I sliced my left index finger quite nicely with the tip of the blade. Dropping everything, I ran to the bathroom and washed out and cleaned the cut, then applied pressure to it for a while before bandaging it up. It could have been much worse, I reckon. As it is, it's just annoying, and the bandage on my finger slows down my typing.
