Because I'm a Genius, That's Why.

You know that part in the movie The Wedding Planner where Matthew Mcconaughey and Jennifer Lopez knock a nude statue over and the statue's *ahem* falls off and they have to super glue it back on? Remember how Mcconaughey's hand gets super glued to the unmentionable and JLo has to use fingernail polish remover to remove it? Well, I always thought that was just theatrics, that your hand could never really get superglued to something so completely that you couldn't just pull away.

Definitely not theatrics.

And you want to hear the best part? It wasn't just one hand. I glued BOTH of my thumbs to a picture frame that I was fixing. I thought I was going to have to dial the phone with my tongue to get help. However, I am way better without thumbs than I would have ever thought. I managed to get my manicure box from the top shelf of my closet, fish out the fingernail polish remover, open it (I did have to use my teeth for that), pour a little into the cap and (here comes the tricky part) use Q-tips to detatch myself from the picture frame. That too required my teeth. Thankfully, one of my thumbs was not completely glued down so it didn't take very long to get it unstuck. The other one took some work.

I believe I still have all my DNA intact. And my pride only suffered slightly since I didn't actually have to walk over to my neighbor's house with a picture frame attached to my thumbs.

Reminds me of the time I got my palm stuck in the dishwasher handle. Thankfully a friend was there or I may have been stuck till Robert came home. I'm impressed with your dexterity without thumbs!
