Was adjusting the handle on my lawn mower a couple of weeks back when it fell (the handle, not the mower) pinching my thumb between one of the rails. The base of the nail detached and was sticking out about 1/4" or so. A trip to our health co-op got me sympathy and a butt full of Demerol. Last week I had to have the nail removed. The chunk of flesh in the photo, my little mountain, was pushing the nail into the quick, so I was in mild pain all the time. Getting the nail removed even after being drugged up, wasn't a real thrilling experience either. When I look back over my run in with the mower, I wonder, "how could I have been that stupid??" Any other stupid stories out there??
