So with OVFF coming up next weekend, last night was a wonderful time to catch a splinter in the tip of my middle finger on my left hand from the banister as I went downstairs for dinner. Unfortunately, it was embedded in a way that made it stubbornly resistant to my and daisy_knotwise's attempts at removal last night. I decided to see if it worked its way out overnight.
No such luck. But with a bit of assistance from a straight pin and a pair of tweezers, the offending itty-bitty bit of wood has now been removed, slight bleeding has occurred, and the healing process is underway.
Because it would be really annoying to have an infected, inflamed fingertip just in time for OVFF... :)
