Brains: sewing your finger to an embroidery project
Done this. When you pick up your hand and the project goes with it and you’re like “…my calluses are worse than anticipated.”
That’s exactly it! Embroidery needles are tiny and sharp, so it’s way too easy to just grab a piece of dry skin or the very top layer of a callus and just not notice.
Also it is kinda hilarious to try to set a project down and not be able to…
Gah! I used to do this all the time when I commuted 4 hours a day. I’d be particularly prone to it going home, just sleepily stitching myself to my work.
It makes you feel like a special kind of monster to yawn while ripping stitching out of your hand in front of a train of commuters.
It also earns you lots of space on public transport.
