Skin is amazing. One week ago I stupidly cut myself trying to push the partially-attached lid of a tin-can back into the can itself; part of my thumb was flapping. Now, it's not only joined back up and is half-healed, it has done so without leaving me with a disfigured Frankenthumb as I feared it might.
I'm donating 10% of my next paycheck to skin.
I'm donating 10% of my next paycheck to skin - you're going to buy lots of moisturiser, aren't you? Girl.
Cheerio, Michael. xxx
It was a false promise. I realised that I had already promised that 10% to the larynx.
What a lovely image for Sunday lunchtime. :P
Try not to think about the gushing blood when you're carving the roast...
You don't post and then this is what we get! tsk!
Life is a combination of disappointment and casual kitchen maladies. The best thing we can do is buy underpants and whistle to distract ourself.
Are you a relation of Claire from Heroes?
Sadly not having seen Heroes, I can only reply "maybe, yes, or perhaps no"
She has special healing powers.
Dude, I couldn't agree more. I recently ripped off a load of skin just underneath the nail of my index finger (not on purpose, I hasten to add) and I was convinced that this finger would never have the smooth skin-to-nail join that all the others have again. Less than a week after the actual bit of skin repaired itself, it redid the little bit that joins onto the nail too, and now it's all smooth again. Skin for the win!
Skin is great, yay skin etcetera...BUT not so fab when people start quoting facts like a third of a mattress's weight is DEAD SKIN...which is major eeeew, obviously.
yet when i happily offered to explain to you the science of wound healing, were you interested? were you hell.
