How to Peel and Eat an Orange with Only One Hand
If you haven't figured it out yet, I broke my hand.
I have been trying to have as much humorous fun with it as possible.
And I've also been trying to see what is and is not possible to do with only one hand.
I also tried to get one-handed (or nosed) pictures of the process of peeling and eating an orange.
First: Get a plate or cutting board. The plate might be easier if the orange rolls around instead of sitting still since it has a small little lip (the plate, not the orange).
Second: Get a knife. I just use our dull, old steak knives. This is one case when a sharper knife might be ideal.
Third: Get your orange.
Fourth: Place your orange on your plate and cut straight down with your knife. You might need to pierce the skin a little bit with the knife first.
Fifth: Cut your orange halves into quarters. Make sure if you're trying to document it, you get a blurry one-handed picture.
Sixth: Try to eat the oranges out of the peel.
Seventh: Decide that too much orange pulp gets into your teeth and that it is extremely annoying eating the orange this way AND that you'll have to use one of your top 10 most useful items when you have a broken hand. after eating it this way. I'll let you figure out which of the 10 items it is.
Eighth: Figure out that if you can juuuuust get your thumb between the peel and the orange, you can single-handedly separate the orange from the peel with a little (or a lot of awkward) nudging.
Ninth: Put the (finally) separated orange segment in your mouth and chew.
Tenth: Repeat steps eight and nine with the rest of the orange quarters.
IF you try to get pictures of the process, it will also require the use of a prop and your nose.
Here's the tricky part:
Try to balance your camera on your prop (in my case, it was a dishwasher silverware caddy) and press the button with your nose while you use your only useful, available hand to demonstrate how to separate the orange from the peel with one hand.
And finally. . . . . . . ..success!!!! You've eaten some of the Vitamin C that can help heal your bone.
