From Man in Japan:
It always seems to be me that these things happen to; no-one else even has a scratch, but I now have a total of five painful finger-slits, three of them on one finger. This wouldn’t be so bad, but it’s on my guitar hand, and means that my housemates won’t be treated to Swallowed or Californication for at least four days. They’re also very upset, as you can imagine.
I don’t know how they’ll survive!
