We all love the smell of books, freshly off the press, but show a little restraint, wouldja?

You were licking an envelope, filled with wondrous praise to a lonely, depressed author. Or sending a check. Checks are always good.

Precie said...

Ow. Perhaps you need new glasses?

I could make a joke about publishing and the stock market and a dollar bill but I won't. Oh and even Obama would fit.

Ewwww. Nothing hurts worse than a paper cut!

What, no photo?

I hope it's better soon.

I see you've practically succumbed to the spell of Twitter.

Kerry said...

that's rather impressive...

Nice place for a band-aid.

Seriously, though, hope you feel better soon.

Does that mean the manuscript responsible for your injury will be automatically rejected? Or will it still make the cut?

Sorry about your injury. I suppose it's an occupational hazard not covered by workman's comp.

*snort* I do hope it's not a bad one (I almost needed stitches from a paper cut once) but that still just cracks me up!

Attack of the slush?

I'm sorry you got a paper cut, especially on your nose--noses are sensitive. It must've really stung!

But oh, it gave me a laugh at first. I can identify. Those of us who handle paper and books all day can get paper cuts.

GOOD JOB! :-)

You need to add "Don't send in manuscripts on scented paper" to your manuscript criteria. (Or you could just refrain from sniffing...your choice really.)

;)

Yeesh. I got one between my fingers the other day. That hurt like a brother pucker.

When I was in graduate school, studying so much I couldn't see beyond my nose, I had a fear that I'd fall asleep in my books only to be awoken by a paper cut to the eyeball. Ouch.

Does your papercut nose make you want to invest in an e-reader?
