Fact #104: Band-Aid Glue vs My Flesh

My arm is mad at me.

I, in turn, am mad at the people who make Band-Aids.

The doctor told me to keep my stitches covered, so I've been diligently applying a new bandage morning and night.

The stitches are healing up nicely, but the same can't be said for the patch of skin around them, which is being slowly but surely destroyed by the Band-Aid glue. It's like no one told the makers of Band-Aids that people would be sticking these things to their bodies, not using them to hang shit on the walls. So maybe using industrial strength super glue was a bit of overkill.

Ouch.


Til tomorrow!

yeah, ouch. Sorry! Maybe you should just skip the band-aid. Maybe you can just get a wrap of some sort to cover the stitches.
