A painful beginning

Had to go to the emergency room on New Years Day after I cut my thumb while slicing cabbage for dinner. We folks from the south eat black eyed peas and greens - cabbage, spinach, turnip greens, collard greens, mustard greens - on New Years day.
It's a tradition that goes back to the civil war.
The copper colored black eyed peas and the green greens represent all the money you will make in the coming year. Get it? Copper pennies and greenback dollars.
I've paid a painful price for my 2008 cabbage.

Not sure if you recall when I sliced the top of my pinkie finger while slicing onion, I believe, ~ I must have hit a nerve as I have no feeling in the tip of my finger. Are you healing nicely?
