I didn't need that part of my thumb anyway.
This will be brief as I'm typing mostly with one hand. Apparently I don't know the difference between a green onion and my thumb and as I type I'm looking at the substantial slab of flesh I lopped off my thumb. It's not big enough to have gone to the hospital, but big enough that I'm still leaking blood some 7 hours later.
I hope it goes without saying that I'm not up to commenting and writing a full post just now, but to get you started, the word is
I'll put up the linky tool tomorrow. Unless I get gangrene. I'm just sayin'.
