A question for the horsey girls....

...Why are bloody hay splinters the most painful thing ever? I have two and they're so small that I can't even see them - but Oh Goodness I can sure as hell feel them. They nestle undetected in the pads of your fingers - and then you momentarily put a bit of pressure on a finger and hey presto - almost reduced to tears with the shock and sharpness of the pain (am I being a bit wimpy here? - I think not as I am usually somebody who can stoically cope with any level of pain that life throws at me...it's a girl thing) !!

Now I am gearing up to being a concert pianist (!) I need to take extra special care of my fingers - and hay splinters are not helping.

I'm now going to dig away at my fingers (there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth) with a sharp needle in an attempt to wheedle them out :(

Posselq is home tonight - so I will be expecting sympathy.
