Wanna see my finger?
Every time I look at it, I am reminded of Dave, the comic book artist who used to run Pokemon card games at Wizards (when I was working there seven years ago). Whenever something was really awful, whether it was a game he couldn't win or an injury or an illness, he said it was "brutal." I can still hear the way he said it, and it's so appropriate here. My finger is brutal.
Then (in the hospital):
It's been four weeks, so I'm not sure if it looks good or bad.
You can be honest about how it looks. I am fairly much over being traumatized about it, and I am just sort of amazed and sometimes amused that it happened.
So, there you have it. Sorry it took me so long to post the pics.
