I have been speared. Through and through. Left to right. Side to Side. A most unpleasant, painful and shocking experience.
Thankfully Prince Charming was there with peroxide and his trusty pliers to remove the offending tree. I swear it was large as a sequoia! Tall as a house! Strong as ironwood! A chip of an olde beam from the USS Constitution.
I was sanding an exterior door frame; prep work for painting. Nearly done too, which of course is why my attention wavered. Not moments before, wearing gloves crossed my mind…but I was almost finished. Yeah. Right.
Enter the splinter. Completely through my finger. Ouch! I say again – Ouch! and a few other choice words. Thankfully there was enough wood sticking out, and yes, he really did use pliers to remove it. It was that big! Betadine. Bandage. Repeat.
