I had gotten a splinter last night and my finger had been hurting ever since. It was really deep and small, though, it's not like i could just pull it out with tweezers. I cut my finger with some nail clippers, but it was deeper than i could go, so I got a safety pin and just now I finally got it out. Damn, it hurt. It still hurts, now, though, because there's almost a hole in my finger. :-( Owie.
