Small Prick

Thanks to the miracle doctors at the QEQM, I was able to get out in the garden again yesterday.

While I was pulling up the weeds under the hedge at the front, I felt a sharp stabbing pain in my left thumb. On closer inspection, it seemed I had been jabbed by a syringe which had been dropped there, next to what looked like a cable tie. The syringe was marked 'insulin', so I can only assume some poor diabetic must have come over a bit queasy and had to inject themselves on the spot.

I do wish they'd take their paraphernalia home with them, though, and not just toss it in my garden.

Are you sure that it wasn't marked 'insultin'?

Well it might have been. It had some kind of brown residue in it.
