I actually did sew thru my thumb in 7th grade Home Ec. I was threading the needle and, for some reason, my foot decided not to get off the pedal when I told it to. So when my thumb was under the needle, and I was concentrating intensely on that little hole, my foot smashed down on the pedal (on purpose, I think) and the needle took a big gash out of the side of my thumb.
I heard the machine moving first, and thought, "That's not supposed to be happening now."
Then I saw it and thought, "That's not gonna feel good."
Then I felt it. I was right.
I didn't tell the teacher b/c I thought she would fail my project, so I found some kleenex and duct tape. Not joking, either...no way I was gonna take that class again!
So this gear-making stuff can be dangerous. For some reason, sewing just isn't as dangerous as my manly gear-making is...
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
