A pretty party for spring. A picnic on the wide front porch with tulips on the table and a big glass pitcher of cold lemonade with mint and sliced lemons. Ham, potato salad, deviled eggs and coconut cake. Children running on the lawn and through the kitchen. And then ... who thought there would be so much blood? Gushing. Screaming. A wet kitchen towel to wrap up the wound. A quick trip to the emergency room. Hope someone cleans up the kitchen before I get home.
