“You’re never as tough as other people believe you are.” – “Blind Spot” Robert B. Parker
Cut my finger. Not a very big cut but significant enough that blood has spotted my clothes as well as the floor. Need a Band-Aid. Not a tourniquet……just a regular size Band-Aid.
One caveat. A big caveat. Locate the Band-Aids without dripping more blood on my clothes and surroundings. The person in charge of procuring and storing medical supplies is sleeping.
Don’t want to wake her. I can do this.
The last time I saw them they were on top of the washing machine so………………
Whoa………………..what’s this? A pile of stuff where the Band-Aids should be.
At my age, this is a bit of a problem. I’m not as coordinated as I once was so staunching the blood while I dig through layers of intangibles for a Band-Aid is a challenge.
Anyway, I dig down through 4 layers of towels, 3 boxes of Kleenex and half a dozen clothes pins without losing a drop of blood.
Finally, the menagerie is exposed.
Hmmm……8 boxes. Size and picture on the front. Just need a regular size.
What is this? These are all large enough to cover the front grill of a Mack truck.
I just need to cover a small cut………………..not something the size of a floor mat.
