Splinter

Yesterday morning, as I was making breakfast, I got a wood splinter in the tip of the middle finger of my left hand from one of my kitchen cabinets that, try as I might, I could not get out. I tried squeezing my finger and digging around with a pair of tweezers, but all to no avail.

Since I was late for work, I gave up eventually, thinking that the splinter would probably work it’s way to the surface in time anyway.

But it didn’t. It continued to cause me pain, and to make common daily activities such as typing painful. Finally tonight I turned to t’Internet in desperation, and of course found exactly what I was looking for: Instructions, including a video, on how to remove a splinter.

And it worked! The splinter is out, at last.
