I’m alive today because of superglue.
I’m totally serious here. You remember I had surgery four weeks ago? Well, the incision was superglued. That’s right. My entire left side—okay, so the incision was only about six inches—was superglued. Who knew those kindergarten classes could be so valuable?
There is something very humbling about being held together by glue. It makes you feel, oh, I don’t know, vulnerable. I mean, think about it. One good sneeze and your kidney could end up on your neighbor. Definitely a social no-no.
It's just all rather frightening, don't you think?
The good news is there are no nasty sutures or staples to take out. Not only that, but the scar is already starting to disappear! Can you believe that? If I wanted to wear a bikini—okay, that’s a word picture none of us needs before breakfast, so forget I brought it up.
As you probably guessed, I couldn’t think of a thing to write about today, but I do think that whole glue thing is pretty amazing.
Next time your preschooler works with glue, take extra care in watching him/her. You just may have a surgeon in the making.
