Hand Center

I made an appointment at the hand center to take care of another ganglion cyst - a bump at the base of my finger. Dr. Brown (who's not out of town) took care of me two years ago.

When the scheduler asked, "which finger", I said the second one. I could not remember what to call it (which I'm sure I learned in kindergarten).

All I could think of was, the long one, the one that you use to ... well ... the one that President Bush salutes the country with. Couldn't say that on the phone to someone I don't know.

Most people call it the "middle" finger.
