gangrene and the avocado thumb o’ death
February 23, 2007
So I have this thumbnail injury and it keeps refusing to get better, it just manages to re-injure itself regularly in new and interesting ways. Once in a while I get excitable about the thumbnail injury and mount some new attack, but it never gets better it just finds ways to again, re-injure itself in new and interesting ways.
Today I looked at the thumbnail and it had changed, it now had this greenish line running down the side of the nail.
Gangrene of the thumbnail!
So I slam my hand under hot water, wondering if they have to amputate for this stuff or if the thumb can be saved, mentally dialing my doctor in my head wondering how bad he is going to yell at me for not coming in sooner since clearly this is a disaster it is gangrene of the thumbnail!
The green washes off immediately.
It is just avocado.
I was making guacamole.
