Pondering Pundit

Splinters 

The other day, as I was doing some remodeling work to the home I recently purchased, I was the unlucky recipient of a nasty splinter. It went in deep and, oh boy, did it get my attention. As the days past, I would poke and prod at the dang thing only to have my eyes water and me ending up throwing the tweezers across the room.

Splinters are a funny thing. They hurt like heck when you get one and when you try to coax it from your epidermis you feel that pain all over again. However, if you leave it be, it will fester up and eventually your body will digest it, and all is well again. But during that time of festering, every time you bump it or touch it on accident you remember very quickly that it’s there.
