Like It Or Lump It
Two weeks ago in a meeting, I banged my chest as I do hundreds of times a day, but this time I felt a horrible sharp pain in my thumb. I tried to style it out so no one would notice but when I looked there was a thick blue mark running down the middle of it, ending in a lump. I couldn’t move the end of my thumb properly but by the end of the meeting it was much better and didn’t really hurt that much.
The same thing happened again twice that day, with the same sudden pain and quick recovery. When I showed Fat Sister later she said I should go and get it X-rayed. I didn’t, and I reckon I’ve left it a bit late. The weird lump’s still there and it looks as if I’ll just have to put up with it.
