:: don't stab your finger with a rusty screwdriver ::
first of all: it hurts. second of all: when you tend to be a clumsy girl like me, it may be wise to stay away from tools all together, especially rusty screwdriver tools. i should have thought that bit of advice through before i ended up with one in my middle finger. the brutal wound of that rusty flat head in my birdie finger wasn't even the worst part, nor was the resulting tetanus shot in my upper right arm, the worst part was what came the next day after all these extremely fun things i have just mentioned.
i have to admit, i may have a slight case of Aichmophobia (try and say that out loud), which is a fear of pointy things (pointy things in the form of a shot), so i was slightly considering taking the risk of dying of that "locked jaw" syndrome instead of getting the tetanus shot. sadly, i'm not kidding. however the nurse at the hospital was very nice and found the smallest needle in the whole place just for me. i felt slightly pathetic, extremely pathetic, but it was totally worth it. it didn't hurt one bit.
what did hurt was what came saturday. my arm felt like it had seriously gained 100 pounds all in one night. like it had stayed up eating dozens of donuts and then spent the rest of the night lifting 100 pound weights trying to burn it all off. at one point i couldn't even lift my hand above my head.
lesson learned: don't use rusty screwdrivers and absolutely don't let them "screw" with your middle finger, after all it is the angriest finger of all.
