So just now, I had this massive piece of glass extracted from my foot. Yesterday I was walking into my room and was sort of shuffling my feet when my right one caught something, and since we have hardwood floors I assumed it was just a regular wooden splinter that lodged itself into the ball of my foot. Whatevs. This morning I get up and ask my mother to have a look because I can’t really walk comfortably and I’m planning on flying to China in a few days, so having a limp-free gait would be grand. She gets out the needle and starts digging around and discovers, ‘Wait, this isn’t wood, it’s glass.’ Then she finds some tweezers and in one swift movement pulls out this tremendous shard of broken glass from a bottle that had been broken a few days ago in the kitchen. It was awesome.
