It’s Worth It

I think it was QI that told me how up until electricity was commonplace, most people who died by fire did so reading in bed by candlelight.

Given that I have now sheared off the top of my thumb twice by cooking while reading, I feel like burning in bed with a book would have been all but guaranteed.

Last time it was the back of my thumb chopping apples. This time it was the front while peeling sweet potatoes.

Both times the meals were delicious and the reading only slightly delayed.
