Oops......

Over here in Canada, and I would think it's also the same in the United States, putting your middle finger up to someone is classed as a rude gesture.  It's also called flipping the bird and basically means go away using bad language.

Now why  am I talking about this, you wonder?  So back in late April, early May I dropped a rock on my finger and it resulted in a blood blister under the nail.  One grandson is fascinated with my finger for some strange reason?
 Anyhow, when showing people my finger I usually show it like the photo below.
Can't say I thought much about it, until son mentioned that did I realize that when I do that I am giving people the finger..........can't say I did..........oops!!

That's funny! I would show a person my whole hand, nails facing the person and probably not held up but lying flat. Now you know. That must have hurt.

I remember when my daughter studied ww2 in primary school and learned about Churchill and his V for Victory sign. We caught her surreptitiously practising, she said she was afraid she'd do it the wrong way round when they had to demonstrate in assembly!

In our family this is known as our "swear" finger...

I always thought it was "flippin' the bird". Silly me!

Nasty blood blister there Gil. We always called this the "swear finger".

God bless.
