what makes you think that you are invincible
I can see it in your eyes that you're so sure

I think I have become the poster child for why you should not take the bus to work, spend the day at work, go to the grocery store, take the bus home, and then walk to the taxi stand before getting stitches put in your toe.

We decided to leave them in longer than the standard 7-10 days cuz my toe just didn't want to heal right. The edges weren't seaming together really all that well ... bastard seams.

I took those suckers out tonight anyway ... a day shy of 2 weeks since they were put in ... mostly because I was tired of wrapping my foot in a bag every morning to shower and well, because going in to an office to have someone whip out a pair of tiny scissors is just retarded.

It is now clear to me just how bad the cut really was though. With the wound filling in from below and still having a little trench through my toe due to the non-seaming action, it appears the cut was much deeper than I originally or secondly thought.

Lesson of the day: When you experience white pain, bleed all over the bathroom floor, and need longer than 5 minutes to stop the bleeding ... you should probably not make the assumption that you can "walk it off"

But at least I can share a fresh scar with my little cousin who got stitches three days before me!

Are your seams straight?

I mocked your pain, and that bad karma got me own badly injured toe. I skipped the stitches though. Anything under ten just isn't worth it to me anymore.

ok, I check in for the first time in months and I find you've gone all Yakuza on us and tried to cut off one of your toes. Just *how* did you trip over a ceiling fan? Please tell me it was on the floor.
