Evil, Pure and Total Evil
The Japanese madoline is the bane of my existence. I hate the thing, yet I loathe, I mean love the thing. I use it almost daily and without fail, someone always tries to teach me their method for using the medieval contraption. "Double glove it", "use a fork", "count to five then readjust", "ride it along the edge of the board" and several other tips. Perfectly sliced everything each time, except for when it clips your nails and fingertip off with it.
Yea, I screamed some expletives today, but not when I sliced my finger. No, the cursing and yelp of pain came when I put the blood clotting agent on it. Only after I put it on, did I read the little warning: may feel a burning sensation for 30 seconds when applied.
