Bit Rusty, Oh!


Just a bit ago, I ran a couple things outside to the garbage and as I was going down the stairs, I stepped on a rusty nail that went through my shoe and stabbed my foot, probably inoculating me with tetanus. From what I know of tetanus, it's probably the most horrible, painful way a person can die. Though, apparently, it's treatable these days. This makes twice in one year that I've had rusty metal pierce my skin, and twice in one year I get to obsess about when I last had a tetanus shot or whether I am going to die a hideous death. Is the universe trying to tell me something? Who gets stabbed by rusty metal this much, anyway??
