I've had this pair of broken earrings that needed super gluing back together for ages. I've postponed the job because I'm not good at super gluing things. Actually, I may be too good at it because I manage to glue all sorts of things when I'm aiming just for one item.
Sure enough, I managed to glue my fingertips together. I had to run to the sink and rub liquid soap on them and pull as hard as I could. I got them apart with skin in tact and waited for my hand to dry.
The earring looked good but I still had the back of it to do. I flipped it over and managed to glue my other fingers together. (Cut me some slack here, the glue is very watery - I need super glue GEL next time.)
Now my fingertips are all covered with a layer of glue and they feel as tight as I would imagine a face lift would feel like. (You know those movie stars who look like they are in pain, their faces are so tight?!)
I think I heard somewhere that criminals superglue their fingers so they don't leave finger prints. Guess I could hire myself out for awhile. Hmmmm, maybe that was in the "old" days before Laytex gloves.
My earrings, you ask? Well, I managed to glue the hook as well and it set up laying down so one earring will hang down and the other one will hang sticking out sideways!
If only I could fix everything with my sewing machine, I'd be just fine.
