If only all the worries of my life could be solved as simply as this one.

I have just managed to remove the splinter that had lodged itself inside my little finger for over a week now – a tiny sliver of glass.

This morning I poked a hole into the lump under my skin with a pin and pushed as far down as I could bear, then smeared the puncture with tea tree oil. I bandaged the lot and ignored it for the rest of the day until now.

I should be a surgeon. And you should all be proud.

Too much sharing.

You've inspired me, Jim, and now I'm running at the mouth and the hand.

I shall try to be more constrained in the future.
