What has 9 toenails and a...

That would be me.  I have 9 toenails.  At long last, the nail on my left big toe completely detached a couple days ago.  At the bitter end it was hanging on by just the crease on the left where it curls below skin level, so I messed with it until it came off.  The last few nights I was sleeping with a sock on that foot so the nail wouldn't get caught on my sheets, which felt super weird and could be painful, and was wrapping it with a bandaid during the day for the same reasons.

I gotta say, it feels much better now.  On Saturday I found myself surrounded by a swarm of small children and was suprised how much of a relief it was to know that none of them could accidentally step on my foot and rip the nail off, which tends to be incredibly painful.  There's a weird arc across my toe that's indented a bit, and I wonder if it's a new, thin nail starting to grow back, but maybe it stopped short and got dug in where the front of the old nail was still attached.

Here's hoping it works itself out.  I'll be watching it with great curiosity.  This will also not stop me from painting the other 9 some pretty shade of red this summer.

I am sad for your departed toenail, but happy that it will no longer cause you worry, and incredibly amused at the tags you've bestowed on this entry. (:
