Yesterday, I had the 'pleasure' of lodging a small sliver of wood under my right pinky nail. I think I got it all out, but it still kind of hurts, especially when typing (darn 'P'). Did you cringe while reading about my experience?

Little bit. I noticed the phenomena at work, when folks kept asking about my taped finger (to cushion the impact on the keyboard). Every one of them cringed, and then fled the scene when I offered a viewing....

I've done this before, but with a staple.

I hope you got the whole sliver. Those things hurt under a nail, even after they are out. You might try putting either some tea tree oil on it or use Carmex on it. It'll heal faster and it will help with the ache.

I'll definitely try this. Thanks.

If you do use tea tree oil, keep that hand away from cats until it's dry. Cats can be affected by the oil.

All honesty, I cringed while typing up the poll, which was done with thumbs....

Yes, I cringed. It's hard to even make a comment about it. Sorry it happened to you. 😢

Life happens. =) I have many worse injuries, but sometimes it's the little one that cause some bigger annoyances.
