Walking Stick Wound
Wednesday, July 18, 2007

A couple nights ago I took an evening walk. I spotted what I thought would be a nice walking stick, and picked it up mid-stride. Apparently, I underestimated the length of the stick, so as I swung it back down, I jammed one end of the stick into the ground and the other end into my hand. Embarrassing. And kinda painful.

Today I discovered that the stick deposited a splinter in my hand.

Problem: The splinter is in the palm of my left hand. I'm left-handed. My right hand is proving woefully inadequate at splinter removal.

I'll have to ask Jonathan if he's up for minor hand surgery. Maybe I'll be a better patient than

Put teething oinment on your had first. It'll numb the area AND held the splinter to ease out.

Will Jonathan have to bribe you with old Valentine candy and no nap?
