Default Don't do this at home...

I've read that many folks use "Crazy Glue" in some applications...

So here's what happened today...I picked up my little squeezey of crazy glue to fix the frame on my glasses. Not my first time around the block...!

I dutifully held the two pieces together for the required amount of time and guess what...

Yes...intermission time now so you guys can stop laughing...

...when I removed my two fingers, only one of them came with me..the other one stayed with the frame.

Now you might think a mere mortal would panic at this point but what's experience for if you don't use it.

So I calmly reached for the nail polish remover with the good hand while the extra appendage followed me in to the bathroom. As luck would have it a brand new box of Q-tips was right there next to the nail polish remover. What a break...BUT...have you ever tried to open a box of anything with a pair of glasses hanging from your middle finger...?

Well eventually I got a Q-tip out...now to open the bottle of nail polish remover. Yup...the appendage that followed me in is still in my way.

So obviously, since I was able to post this, I did manage to get my act together and break away from the extra appendage. And yes, the frames are fixed.

Moral of the story ? ...just because your fingers are away from said glue, don't think that little bugger won't follow some crack leading right for your fingers...

Let's be careful out there...

I was doing good, until I read "Yes...intermission time now so you guys can stop laughing... " then I lost it! Ken did, too, btw... who's laughing right now, as I type.

Nick,

You could have let them stay attached. You would never lay them down and loose them!

If I'm dumb enough to blurt out in the middle of dinner (that I invited the in-laws out for) that I forgot the tuna in the tuna noodle casserole, I can see myself fessing up to doing something just as dumb

P.S. Never lived it down, either; dad used to bring it up every so often

LOL, good one.

I glued several different things back together with "Crazy Glue" from Harbor Freight a while ago ($2 for a package of three btw), including a broken pair of sunglasses. I use a small rubber lined vise with a suction base to hold everything in place and ...... wear HF nitrile gloves ($5/box) whenever doing stuff like this. Trust me....it works and saves plenty of pain and connected suffering, like breaking the freshly repaired part again trying to extract your epidermis from it's newfound permanent connection.

I also heard there is some nail polish remover available that is acetone free, in case you are cleaning up sensitive surfaces.

Glad you're ok, lol.
