Twice yesterday while I was in the bathroom humming the song ‘It’s A Small World’, Cybr scared the hell out of me Psycho-style. Only difference is that he was using an electric shaver.
Seriously, having ‘It’s A Small World’ in my head is scary enough.
In other news, for some odd reason I have left my WAY cool Hello Kitty chopsticks setÂ with matching carrying case (similar to the picture, but better) in the bathroom. Cybr says if I serve Tootsie Roll-looking dim sum for dinner, he’s not eating. Hehe.
Leaving things in odd places around my home is a very common occurance for me. It’s a problem, I am aware of it.
I am growing cat grass for Francois, or at least trying to. I am also slowly killing an aloe vera plant and two other house plants. I have the black thumb of DOOM! Yes, you heard me…DOOM! That should be the opposite of having a “green thumb”…at least in my world it is.
I have a plantar wart that will not go away. I got it the day I moved into my home back in St. Louis…in 2002. I bought the house, no wart. I move into the house a week laterÂ and BAM!, I have a wart. I think it came with the house. I had seen three podiatrists while I owned the home and none of them could get rid of it, even with various treatments repeated multiple times. I even tried to pull a psych-outÂ by selling my wart for a nickel. No luck on that deal. Three years pass and I sell the house, expecting that when I sell the house the wart goes with it…or not. Still have it, so I move on to yet another podiatrist who treats it repeatedly and with great force. She, too, was dumbfounded when it didn’t even react to the treatments by shrinking in size. I let her treat it until I moved to Hong Kong, yet it is still with me. The point to this story is this:
I am now treating my plantar’s wart with Chinese medicine. It is a topical oil with the following indications: Rheumatism, muscle pain, sprain, spasm, bruise, muscular fatigue, insect bites, etc…
I figure if something that treats such a wide variety of symptoms doesn’t work, then I really am going to have to have an exorcism performed on the damn thing. I just hope this stuff works on plantar’s warts, I meanÂ my ailmentÂ does fall into the “et cetera” category. The indications listed above are quoted exactly from the packaging, just so you know. Wish me luck!
UPDATED TO ADD:
I actually did try the duct tape, per my latest podiatrists recommendation after not being able to treat it. A podiatrist told me that! Funny. Not exactly the medical advise you would expect, but I was/am willing to try anything. I also tried garlic cloves. No luck with that either, plus it stinks and is messy.
The duct tape may work for a normal wart, mine is apparently a spawn of the devil. It may take over the world.
The selling the wart for a nickel was a recommendation from my Dad. He said it worked for him when he was a kid, he sold a wart on his hand for a nickel and it went away. So, he offered to buy mine and I took him up on it. Too bad the wart didn’t want to be sold!
