I built this apple press that I'm actually pretty proud of (see below).

So I'm out there Saturday night, havin' a be'ah and then another... cuttin' up apples and tossin' em through the garbage disposal (TRE-MEN-DOUS idea I stole off the interwebs... works PISSA).

... when sure enough... ZZZZIP..

I take off the entire pad ("finger print area") on my left middle finger. I mean... I cut the FUGGGGG outta it.

Of course, I'm in the house solo and the SWMBO is out with the cherubs so I'm standing in the garage shooting blood going, "SHT!!!! Did I get any blood on the apples!?!?!". (luckily I didn't)

Luckily the big chunk of finger is still attached.. by... I'm not kidding... less than a 1/16th of an inch sliver... so I slap that bad boy back on the finger and crunch down a bigass bandaid as tight as I can cause I'm thinking, "eff this... I'm not sitting in an emergency room for like four hours"

And...

went back to pressing apples.

Well... it stopped bleeding yesterday, which is sweet.

Only a TINY bit of it has turned black but it is really stinky. Not like, good-God-who-just-got-in-the-elevator! stinky... but more like when-i-hold-it-up-to-my-nose-I-smell-a-smell-I've-never-smelled-my-body-give-off-before stinky.

That's not bad is it??



PS... why... what did you think it was stinky from?

Damn now that sounds like a rough night! But you stuck it out and got those apples pressed! I mean who after a night of heavy drinking hasn't woken up with at least one stinky finger. But yours smells like something died? Maybe there is an infection or some dead flesh in there? If you can find some leeches I think those will usually take out any dead parts. Or maggots but that is kind of nasty.

Does it smell like cheese? If so, get to the doc ASAP.

I mean, nevermind, it will be fine.

It is more like a fishy cheese... but it doesn't look infected.

I'd be willing to bet that the tip of your finger is either infected or died and that's why it smells so bad. Go to the doctor.
