Today, I learned an important life lesson concerning the food mandolin we recently purchased . . .
I was slicing onions without using the slide to hold the onion and accidentally removed the tip of my thumb. Fortunately, the mandolin was set on an extra thin setting. The lesson: Never use a food mandolin without the safety slide.
Edit: I'm quite sure this falls under the Life Rule Number 3: Don't Be Stupid.
