And This Little Piggy Went To The Hospital
When people get older, they tend to shrink. My father is 62 years old now, but he shows no signs of this phenomenon.
So he decided to take matters in his own hands.
He had offered to help me again with the bedroom on Thursday, but he called me yesterday to say he couldn’t make it. He cut off the top of his finger with garden scissors, you know the ones that can cut through 1cm thick branches. Only a teeny bit of skin still connected the top to the rest of his finger.
So they rushed to the hospital and the doctors sewed it on again. He will be fine, but he can’t use his finger for a while.
The man is really careless with his hands. When he was still studying (to become a pharmacist), he rammed a glass tube through the tendon of his right index finger. Ever since he has a crooked index finger that he can’t move, except where it joins his hand. The ultimate mouse-click finger if you want.
But he really should be more careful (and wear gloves!)
