Because I’ve got the splint on, I can’t wash up regularly. Toilet visits mean that I can’t wash my hands properly so I’ve taken to using a pump action bottle of hand sanitizer.
Tonight I found that the sanitizer is extremely slippery when wet; gently rubbing my hands together launched the splint into the air, like a rocket. I think I screamed and I certainly grabbed it and shoved it back on as fast as I could but my misshaped finger had definitely been allowed to sag.
The clock has been reset.
