"I'll take That's Rather Painful for $200, Alex"

I'm sitting on the couch early this evening and I notice that my middle finger hurts, right at the tip next to the nail. There's also a blue mark under the nail that goes in about an inch.

Poking around at the front part of the nail that's not attached to skin, I notice that there's a small bump like there's gunk under my nail. "Hm", I say, "Looks like I got some gunk under my nail." I try to just scrape the gunk out with another finger but it won't move.

So I get some tweezers, grab the bump, and pull.

Oh. My. God.

Turns out the "gunk" was a thorn, about 1/3 of an inch long. How it got under my nail I don't know. It might not seem like much, but it felt like a steel spike as it came out from under my fingernail. My finger still hurts and is a bit throbby.

Ouch.
