Guess what this is?
Okay, I'll just tell you. They are the staples that held my poor Grandma's head wound closed after her brain surgery. She had them taken out today and when the nurse wheeled her into the waiting room Gram looked at me and said to the nurse, "Can I keep my staples?" and the nurse was like, "...um...what?" and Gram said, "I want my staples," so the nurse went back in and I imagine dug them out of the trash and brought them out to her in a little box. Then Gram handed them to me and said, "Here. These are for you." So I get to keep them!
This may seem weird to you, but one time Kira and I were obsessively lusting after a scab my grandma had on her knee because we LOVE to pick scabs, and let me tell you something, that particular scab was a BEAUTY, perfectly round, dry and thick. Gram wouldn't let us pick it and Kira asked if when it finally came off if Gram would send it to us. We couldn't go that far, but Gram must have remembered our love of healing wounds and was thoughtful enough to share her head staples with us.
Jealous? Hey! Maybe I could have a blog giveaway! Become a new follower and I'll send you a staple! And if you get two friends to become followers, I'll give you one that has skin on it! (But act fast, only two have skin left on them!)
