Oh christ she got a picture phone

This is my thumb. It has a thing on it. Not sure what the thing is, but there it is.

I also took pictures of this with a disposable camera. But when I got the pictures back from CVS, the pictures of my thumb were missing.

I think they thought it was a penis.

What are you gonna do?

Stupid CVS people.

Is it a wart?
A boil?
A sign of an allergic reaction?

No idea. I think it started as a blister after a bunch of yard work, and then it just hardened and took on a life of its own. It's going away now, but I've had a good month of walking around, shoving it in people's faces and going, "THIS...WHAT IS THIS???"

Didn't hurt unless I fucked with it - which I can't help but do ALL THE TIME.

Oh, man...decaf...

Its funny, when they did an autopsy on the "Man from Nantucket" they found a thumb stuck in his ear...

How did you manage to get a blister on your penis?

so i found your blog when you stopped by my blog (my son has the tartan pj bottoms) -- and i think an experiment on CVS needs to be done. more mysterious bump on finger photos. like, an entire memory card FILLED. then it forces them to explain why you received no photos. and it makes the awkward, 14-year-old at the CVS photo counter say "penis." good fun! keep me posted!

Ugh, Kim. Must've been the laundry detergent - yeah, that's it...I don't know how you guys walk around with those things.

Kari - welcome to the pub. Yes, I did a bit of wandering last night after a ton of sangria, and now I need to rely on return comments to trace my steps. I like the idea of going back in to CVS demanding to know what happened to my 'thumb' photos. But as the days wear merrily forward, I find I can't be bothered.

I would get that tested for the Staph bacteria MRSA (Methicillin resistant staph aureus). A friend of mine had a similar-looking bump on her shin that wouldnt go away...the doctor finally cultured a sample of it, and confirmed she had the antibiotic-resistant superbug.
Her advice to everyone, everywhere after this ordeal: get every weird boil/pimply-looking bump that won't go away tested IMMEDIATELY.

Other than that, the Horse's Ass Pub fucking rocks!!! Glad I found it!!

Welcome Jen - glad you found me too. Was I wandering over to your blog last night too? My goodness - who else will stop by today? Can't wait to find out!

But GAHHHHHH!!! SUPERBUGS???? Aunt Em, I'm frightened!

Actually, my dear friend Kari Larson sent me a link last nite to your blog; she said I would love it. Damn, that Kari has good taste.
I noticed in your profile that you are also in your early 40's, like the Clash, Withnail & I, and Irvine Welsh. Kick ass!!! I also have a bug-hating husband, by the way. We need to get drunk and mock people sometime soon. Whaddaya say?

And don't get too worked up about the possibility of MRSA; it's actually very rare...but has the potential to spread easily. Just be aware of it, and get checked out. This is one nasty bug that you don't want to fuck with.

Getting drunk and mocking mean...and so, so fun.

If you're ever in the Boston area, look me up, we shall go out and have a beer or several dozen.

Oh, the thought of the CVS people flipping through your photos and pulling out ones that might be construed as body parts or drugs or people wearing horizontal stripes! It is so stupid that it's probable!

So do I have to flip through the entire National Enquirer to find your pics?!?

It's reminds me of that film, How to Get Ahead in Advertising, with Withnail if I'm not mistaken.

Nice pull, Cat!

Happily, this thing has yet to say anything. And if it did, why I'd...

I'd start a religion!
