Then there was the time I was splitting some hickory with a hatchet to make properly sized chunks for my WSM.
I hit my left hand as the hatchet made contact with the hickory. 11 stitches to the outside of my left index finger (hatchet made it over 1/3 of the way through my finger). Still have some nerve damage, but it doesn't affect my ability to cook.
