I went back to the polyclinic for the third time. The nurse removed my dressing and said that my toe had healed so there was no need for anymore dressing. I just need to be careful with it as the skin in that area was still tender. I went back to office and a lot of people came to look at it. Half were grossed out and half had no reaction. I felt like an exhibit.
Big Ben was one of those grossed out ones. I met him in the lift as we were leaving the office. He saw my toe and was totally grossed out. So I told him, “Are you a man or not? Stop being so screamish.”
“Are you hitching a ride in my car?” Big Ben countered.
“Oh ya, er, well, er, it’s ok to be screamish then. Don’t look,” I said quickly.
Big Ben said that I was like a mutant and Si Hamil added, “Like X-Men: Second Class.”
I laughed and asked them what was my mutant power.
“The power to gross people out,” Si Hamil replied.
