Since I quit biting my nails, I have been trying to figure out what to do with them. I really don't like the look of nail polish (all that color just freaks me out), but I have a thing about nasty, dirty nails.
I keep a nail buffer, clippers (for the occasional hangnail), emery boards, and cuticle pushers sitting on my comp desk so that when I notice a nail is uneven or that there is crud underneath I can fix the issue without biting. (Ok, so that is a little OCD-ish, but read about my night last night and I will seem perfectly normal again)
I have been floating 'round the net off and on all day, and just a few minutes ago when I got up to check supper I made the mistake of leaving the cabinet doors open. Um, yeah. I have one of those "computer hutch" things that you can close the doors on. I am a little OCD-ish about electronics hanging out in full view and open storage, too.
When I came back to the 'puter, all seemed well. Then I heard this horrible scraping noise. It was reminiscent of sandpaper on concrete. It made my teeth shiver and gooseflesh rise all over me (and is still doing it, now that I think about it).
Being the proactive kind of gal that I am, I went looking for the source of this horrific noise. I found Little Sprout CHEWING on my nice new 7-way nail file and buffer!
Do you know how nasty and slimy a nail file can get when it is covered with baby slime?
