Different Kinds of Pain

Very Painful: Crumpling up a paper-towel that has a toothpick in it, and driving said toothpick approximately 3/8 of an inch into the fleshy part of one’s palm near the thumb, between the thumb and forefinger.

Likewise Quite Painful: Pulling it out is pretty painful, too; you can feel the wood’s grain dragging across flesh and nerve endings.

More Painful Yet: Knowing that you are the idiotic dumba** that put the toothpick on the wadded up paper-towel not 2 minutes earlier when you were cleaning the kitchen counter.

Consolation: Tetanus shot up-to-date; apparently no infection, either.

Lessons Learned (2):
  1. Toothpick sharp.
  2. Me tard.
