Now when a finger or toenail gets damaged they tend to grow a bit funny forever after. I already have a couple of these greasemonkey scars, and I'm not overly concerned about having another. However, this one looks like it will be a little more problematic.
The shard o' nail that was peeled up extends back to the cuticle, and after 2 weeks it shows no sign of ever rejoining the rest of the nail proper. It just keeps growing along it's own merry little trajectory, totally divorced from the formation that spawned it.
The little bugger is adept at getting caught on clothing and other items, often being lifted up just enough to induce a little blood flow. This is getting to be irritating, and nothing ruins a good shower like suddenly discovering that your finger is attached to the towel when drying off. Even worse is having a piece of nail catch on a hard surface unexpectedly and being bent back 90 degrees.
So I'm soliciting solution suggestions for my little problem. Please vote in the poll at right and let me know what you think my best course of action would be.
