Occasionally,i get the urge for chewing gum and i prefer the individually wrapped ones,tastier i think,and having the problem also of disposing the other type i don't buy those anymore.The last time i did buy the unwrapped variety , when i had finished with it , i stuck it on my dashboad of the car and forgot about it for a few days.It had slipped to my car floor and was a nightmare to get off-i never managed to get it all off.
I am a bit grumpy today,i sliced my thumb with a sharp piece of glass.It was the deepest and largest cut i've ever had,the blood was streaming down my elbow onto the floor.I had no plasters so borrowed one from next door-my other neighbour was coming out of his house at the same time, he just stood still and stared at my blood soaked hand ..you could barely see my hand and half arm for the blood.I think he was deciding whether he should do something or not but seeing i was with another neighbour he thought i would be ok.
After 20 minutes still bleeding profusely,i was close to going to the walk in centre to get it bandaged and i decided to give it another 5 minutes and see.
The bleeding did stop and finally i could see the cut-quite deep and two inches in length.I drove to the shop to buy antiseptic wipes and plasters.
I'll see how it heals over the next couple of days but it's a biggie and it may need glueing.
I cannot use my thumb at all[Tricky using the computer mouse!]--funny how you take little things for granted.
