Regular viewers of Family Guy will be familiar with the sketch where the James Woods character is distracted from the idea of getting revenge on Peter Griffen by a piece of candy, but surely no one would be stupid enough to fall into such an obvious trap thats only going to lead to harm to self?
That's where I can step up to the plate. (hmmm baseball term, I'm becoming more American all the time)
I was feeling a little peckish just a short time ago, so I decided that maybe it was time to make myself a piece of bread and nutella.
As I was spreading the nutella on the bread I spotted a dribble of nutella on my thumb. Well I couldn't let some nutella go to waste - this is after all the same person who would stick is finger in the jar to scrape every last bit hazlenutty goodness before throwing a jar in the bin.
It was only as my finger was approaching my tongue that I realised something wasn't quite right - by which time momentum could not be reversed.
Finger makes contact with a wet tongue and pain oozes out. Sonofabitch!
Somehow as I glanced at my finger and thought I saw nutella I had somehow managed in the same instant to forget I had cut my finger yesterday making chips (fries), and that brown looking splodge was just old blood under the surface of an open wound.
