Knuckle Meat

In the course of turning some tools these last few years, the broadside of my left index finger has borne the brunt and many flesh-carving incidents.  I am right handed, so I guess the fact that righty is usually gripping a tool leaves lefty exposed.

Another issue with being a (bike) grease monkey is that I cannot keep my hands and fingernails clean.  people at my day job (as an architect at S.O.M.) have noticed.  Its a hot topic on conversation....actually, its not.  The fact that we won Architecture Magazines "Firm of the Year" is a hot topic.

I guess this blog post wouldn't even be worth writing if I just wore gloves.
