Yesterday, I moved quite a few items out of my storage unit # 1. I’m trying to at least cut down from 2 storage units to 1 storage unit. So, after almost injuring the 2 guys that were helping me, we got it done. But I’m serious when I say that we worked a good solid 4 hours in the storage unit, in the heat.
So, later in the evening, I was resting at home and walking around the house. Have you ever felt the bottom of one of your feet and felt a small piece of dead skin? Just a tiny, tiny piece of skin and for whatever reason, it consumes you. But when you try to peel it off, it hurts because the dead skin is attached to the “alive” skin and that part wants to stay. Well, for whatever reason, I became fixated on this little piece of dead skin and I wanted it gone from my foot. So, I decided to just grab it with my nail of my thumb and forefinger and just get rid of this tiny bit of dead skin. Again, this skin wasn’t really bothering me. But it had to go. I pinched it with my 2 fingernails and pulled. And Lord, oh Lord, apparently, I took a slither of “alive” skin with it. A little over an inch. Oh MY God… It hurt like HELL!!! And it’s still hurting now!!! And before I knew it, my carpet was looking like a crime scene from CSI. I hobbled to the bathroom tracking blood with every step. I scared the crap out of my dog. I got into the shower. Blood was all over and I was in PAIN!!! If you have a little dead skin on your foot. LEAVE IT ALONE!
