Anaxagoras I'm trying to imagine what it would be like for my wife to come home from grocery shopping and say in an offhand manner "So it looks like I lost one of my fingers today. Hurts like a bitch, too."

infinite zest But yeah, when I lived in Milwaukee my wife would do the grocery shopping because I had to work until after they closed, and the only grocery store nearby was across a bridge that separated the hipster neighborhood from meth/gang central, and if you're being chased or something there's really nowhere to go. Freaked me out every time she said she was picking up some groceries. :(
