Thank goodness for a dull axe

I was cutting kindling. Was wearing my heavy leather work gloves. The axe slipped and whacked my hand. blankety-blank-blank-blank.....that HURT!!! Don't worry, though. No blood was spilled. Didn't even break the skin. The axe was dull and only travelled a matter of inches, so really it was more like hitting myself with a hammer.I know it's badly bruised, even though you can't tell. It's sensitive to pressure, like the dog leash pulling on it, or banging it. Then it hurts like hell.
