Owwwwie I have a sliver. How can something so tiny hurt so much.
I will get out the needle and the alcohol…to clean the needle I will use to lift the skin. I hope I won’t need any alcohol to prep myself for the major surgery to ease that little piece of wood fibre out of my hand.
I can remember as a child the hollering and whining when my mom would get out the sewing needle and tweezers to remove a sliver. No, no, no, no… I would cry. I was just a little on the dramatic side back then.
Now I will be a big girl and remove the splinter myself and I won’t even cry. Just don’t get me started on paper cuts.
