Heh heh heh heh. Good thing you weren't roto-tilling, eh?
At least it was accidental - I once stuck a needle into a tooth cavity to see if it would hurt or not.

LOL! Assuming our global situation mellows out enough to let any of us last that long. Danke for the thoughts though.

I had the same experience with a piece of broken glass some weeks ago. I wanted to grab a microscope slide and there was a coverglass shard which decided to explore the inner world of my fingertip. I removed it quickly and thought it's fine.
Days later there was a massive ball of pus under the skin (about 4x5 mm). I cut it open and removed the pus, but it returned. So I cut further deep and finally found a 3x1.5 mm piece of glass inside. It was in there for one week.

Maybe it was a Mogul-coverglass and mistook you for Frodo???

I don't understand. What's a Mogul-coverglass?

Why did you do that? You had to figure the odds were against you not feeling extreme pain, right?

I do believe he meant "Morgul" coverglass, like unto the Morgul blade used by the Black Riders (Ringwraiths) to wound Frodo at the Last Bridge near Rivendell in "The Lord Of The Rings" by J.R.R. Tolkien. The blade was cursed and it's tip broke off inside Frodo's shoulder and malevolently worked it's way into his body toward his heart. Luckily Elrond managed to remove it before it got there, but Frodo suffered pain and a cold feeling in the wound for the rest of his days.

OK, I'm not interested in LOTR.
But I see the connection
