I’ve discovered something fascinating! Two weeks ago I got a bad paper cut (the norm for most novelists). But it was on the end of my pointer finger, which means it was always in water or I kept banging it into things, re-injuring it again and again. So it got infected. Badly. Ouch!!
The problem is I’m Fey and heal almost instantly. That means the wound closed up over the infection ASAP. Every time I punctured it to get iodine down in there to kill the infection the wound would close up within seconds. Ugh!
So I folded toilet paper into a tiny square, dipped it in tea tree oil, put it over the infected wound, and covered it with a bandaid before I crashed every night. While I slept the tea tree oil sunk through my skin, killed the infection, and healed the boo-boo within a few days.
Of course, everything heals magickally with a Hello Kitty bandaid. Wes doesn’t believe me. Ken just smiles. But Hello Kitty bandaids are extreme cuteness. And PINK. That’s magick, right? This is why they’re the only bandaids I will use. Beige is so NOT me. ~twirling, twirling, boo-boo-less~
