Swollen Fingers!

No, that is not the name of a new rock band, (wasn’t there a band called Stiff Little Fingers or something similar) although I am sure it would go down a treat. I can see it now, a music venue full of screaming fans all ready for the band to perform their latest offering. ‘No Grip’ oops, there I go getting away where was I oh yes mr lupus.

So what exactly is Swollen Fingers?
It is in fact the new game mr lupus is playing with me and although it now seems to be a daily routine, I have no idea what the rules are or how exactly I am supposed to play it.

I tried to be really cool and sophisticated about it all allowing mr lupus to play his little game afterall I’m a big girl and I’m not phased by that kind of thing.

I’ve noticed one of the things about mr lupus is that when he is ready he becomes ‘he who would not be ignored’ and he continued to play his game until I had no choice but to take notice of him. It was then that I began to fully appreciate the role the third finger on my right hand played in my life. When last have you stopped to give it any kind of consideration?

Until that point, I never realised that finger was actually a star player, quietly bringing up the rear without conversation or complaint doind and supporting.

I am not ashamed to say I have found a new love and appreciation for my fingers and whilst there is no significant other in my life they are the current object for my affection.

So you see mr lupus I can still see the benefits in the challenges you throw my way.
