As a massage therapist, I rely on my hands. As such, I pride myself in strong, adept manual dexterity. So, would assembling 2 large, complex cabinets from Ikea be the perfect project for me? Oh, no. Not at all. Although I have become fluent in Ikea instructionspeak, putting together one of those (ingenius) contraptions requires so much twisting and turning of screwdriver and other tools; my hands are a wreck today. They are actually swollen from the seven non-stop hours I spent putting together my office furniture. Granted, my office will look amazing, but I'm going to have to rest my hands before my next client. Time to dunk them in a bucket of ice.
