T-169 : Keratin Taratrim
Today I got a haircut by my resident barber. I also trimmed my nails. Now, normally I wouldn't mention something so common and borderline odd. I had a vague recollection, though, that hair and nails were made of the same material. As I went googling around the Internets I soon remembered that the substance is called "keratin". So, I suppose it could be said that I had my Tara kin trim my keratin before I used some other tin to trim my toe keratin. Part of the reason I got excited is that I'm scheduled to get the extra tin hook removed from my toe on Monday. I can't wait to start running and bending again. Then, as I was looking for an accompanying photo for this post I ran across something called a keratin horn. If my telling you I trimmed my nails doesn't make you a bit queasy then I dare you to google "keratin horn" then look through some of the images. I leave you this one as an example of how bad it could be. I certainly feel blessed to only be hampered by a temporary pin and the occasional need to trim some nails or take a pumice stone to a rough patch on my heel or big toe. Eww!
