May 26: Thumb Thorn

Doing yard work.
Grabbed a rose stem.
Stabbed by a thorn.

10 hours later... when the inflammation was rising, along with the pain...
Spent 15 minutes digging with tweezers.

(hand held macro: extension tubes, 105mm, ISO 3200, f/4.)


Nearing my pain threshold, I finally gave in and let Vanessa take a turn.
Instead of probing with tweezers, she squeezed it like a zit. The thorn popped right out. Took her less than 5 seconds.

I must've loosened it for her....

Final score:
Rosebush - 1
Jeremy - 0
Vanessa - 1,000
