A Thorn In My...Finger

I've had a splinter in the tip of my finger for almost a week. A week! I know that it has been almost a week because I pulled it out today and my finger tip started feeling sore last weekend. But, I thought I'd just pinched my finger or something. How did I get a splinter? In any case, I looked down at my finger tip today and noticed something under the skin that I hadn't seen before and sure enough, a splinter had taken up residence all this time without my knowing. This really creeps me out. I don't like thinking about it being there for that long. And you can be sure that next time I have a sore finger, there will be a thorough investigation into the cause.

I was outdoors at my sisters on Tuesday and got a splinter off her railing. It took me about 10 minutes of prodding with tweezers before I finally got it. It is amazing how quickly one little piece of wood can be so aggrevating!

Those are the worst, I hope it was easy to remove!
