"Saw on a tube of superglue that it said “bonds skin instantly”. I was wondering what “instantly” meant exactly…was it in a few seconds or did they mean right then. So I glued my fingers together — the thumb and first two fingers on my right hand.
And stayed that way for two hours until my mother came home because I didn’t know that acetone will dissolve superglue.
….and, before you ask, I was 17."
