Finger faux pas.

A friend came over to me to ask some sewing advice at the time when a machine needle position could be changed by tapping the foot pedal. Distracted, my foot hit the pedal and my finger happened to be under the needle. The needle went clear through my finger nail. I didn't want my friend to feel bad or damage my pride, so I said nothing. I sat there, listening to my friend and hoping she wouldn't notice my finger. After she walked away, I lifted the needle, dislodged my finger and slipped away to the restroom. It took me four years to share with her what happened that day.
