Check Things Out

I was in the kitchen, peeling garlic. I jabbed some garlic peel under my finger nail. It was not what one would call comfortable. It hurt at first, then was numb. Then it really started hurting. I said to Anthony, "This is terrible. It's getting worse."

A few moments later, Davan, who was playing keyboard in the adjoining room, comes in looking down. "Were you talking about me?"

"What do you mean?"

"When you said, 'This is terrible. It's getting worse.' Was that about my piano playing?" she asks, very depressed sounding.

"No, silly girl! I jabbed myself under the finger nail!"

"Oh," she says, very relieved.
