>After I gouged my knee on the bookcase next to my computer desk on Thanksgiving as I types my sappy holiday thoughts, I covered it with a bandage. When I later changed the dressing, the bandage tore of several little chunks of skin, so that I now had four wounds instead of one. I used a larger bandage to cover those wounds, particularly because everything on my knee hurt when it rubbed against my jeans. I think you know what happened next. I'm not using paper medical tape to cover the entire area with a gauze pad. Hopefully, the tape will not rip off more skin when I eventually remove it.
This could be a great metaphor for life or some shit like that.
