41. Being able to use my hands.

I was making this jalapeno dish and I seeded about 30 jalapenos, with my bare hands. Not a smart idea. Note to self: use plastic gloves next time! My fingers literally felt like they were on fire for 24 hours staight! It killed to do the simplest things like open a safety pin, button my jeans, take a shower… I am happy that now have complete use of my hands!
