This week, an Austrian climber in Yosemite Valley took a fall on the granite monolith El Capitan
. As he fell, his thumb caught in some climbing gear and was severed. Amazingly, the severed digit landed on the ledge beside the injured climber's partner, who retrieved it. Amazing helicopter rescue ensued. [more inside]
I misread Alice's
blog today. I thought she meant big Tabasco
. Tabasco also makes a nice spicy soy sauce
which is right tasty on Trader Joe's
vegetable gyoza. I had no idea that they made pickled okra
. I've never tried okra, but this might be enough incentive.
Did I mention that my dad got me to stop sucking my thumb by putting Tabasco on it? I blame him for my enjoyment of spicy food.
