Per Request...

I wanted to spare you the gross factor and not show you my jacked up hand, but since I got a request (and I hate to disappoint) I feel obligated to share a picture. In case you are wondering, no, that's not a shadow-my finger really is three different colors. I wore a band-aid over it today so the kids couldn't see it, but they got curious when they saw all the blue/purple/black. I showed those that were interested in seeing it and told them the story of what happened-being sure to include how I didn't cry once...they were thoroughly impressed (as they should be) and I've reclaimed my rightful spot as toughest kid in class. Fun Story: One kid fell on the playground today and was rolling around as if they were dying (he was totally fine and milking it). As I was watching this unfold I overheard one student look down and say, "You're fine." Then another classmate joined in with, "Yeah, it's not like you stabbed a knife through your finger like Miss ______, you just tripped." I'm glad to know that my pain and suffering is now the gauge as to which child complaints are judged by their peers.

VERY COOL!

Now, did you get a chance to see any bone? Just wondering.

That's what mine looked like when I jammed it into a glass to wash it and the glass broke! Same shape and colors and all! I doused it in peroxide, sealed it up with super glue and slapped a band aid on it.

Jude-No, but I also wasn't pulling apart the skin to check :-)

CJ- That's pretty much what the doctor did, just wondering did it leave a scar?

Vikki-No problem. I aim to please :-)
