So after my awful crying DNF episode the other day, I invested in some Liquid Bandage to cover my Jesus holes (nobody else finds this funny.. I love calling them that, and will continue to do so.)
As I sat in the car, in the parking lot at our office, I read through the box like it wasn’t self explanatory. At the bottom, in tiny, fine print, it said “may sting temporarily during initial application” or something.
Riiiiiight. This means this shit’s gonna HURT.
So, I braved it and said screw it, I need to cover these puppies up. I did my right hand first, and the sting set in.. I sat there and yelped and cried out about how much it hurt, and then quickly decided to do the other hand too, so I at least had simultaneous stinging, and not long, drawn out, back to back stinging. Jesus Christ. I almost knocked the bottle over by flailing my hands around, that stuff hurt so badly!
I held my hands up in front of the blasting AC, in hopes that it would help. There was no turning back now! Deal with it, Alicia. (btw, my name is pronounced A-lee-see-a for those of you who read this and say Alisha.. it’s not, and don’t call me that. It’s A-lee-see-a. I’m half Cuban, be respectful to my parents and me and the name they chose for me and say that shit the right way.)
So yeah, deal with it, Alicia! Get over it. It’s your fault this happened!
So that was what, Tuesday or something? I think so. Yes. The healing that has already occurred is pretty amazing. I wish I took before and after pics, but I just expected them to be pretty bad and for a longer period of time, especially considering how raw and open they were. I’m surprised these things didn’t bleed. Man, they hurt so badly the next day, that I asked Dave to wash my hair! (He did.. such a good sport..)
Here’s how they look now. They don’t really hurt anymore (right side is a little tender) but it is about time to shave those callouses off.. too bad I’ve been slacking and haven’t bought the amazing callous shaver that Jamie is always enticing me with!
