I broke my little finger playing volleyball. It couldn’t stand right, but tended to bow. No pain, though.
I went to the hospital and they said that a chirurgical intervention was needed.
I politely declined.
Then my mother suggested keeping it straight with an ice cream stick (actually it was a ‘cremino’).
And it worked.
I can’t recognize one from the other anymore.
I know, this is not the small one ….
