A few weeks ago Grant got this weird line on his thumbnail; he tried antibiotic ointment on it, but it didn't seem to help, so he finally took himself to the doctor. It seems he has an endochondroma, a benign tumor of cartilage. It's not often seen in anyone over 30.

Grant's taking a scientific view of the whole thing, saying every few days, "Oh, look what it's doing now." It has been sort of cool watching it go from looking infected to peeling off from the bottom.


Do you think we're weird?

  • Thanks for the comment on my "Q is for. . . " I bought the quivet on sale here in NYC at a store that was closing. It had to be two or maybe three years ago. I'd say it's well-marinated by now!
