I was in CVS and it was just me and my dad. He was talking to the lady at the register. I had a back massager thing and I was going to use it on my dads back. Suddenly, i had a sharp pain. I looked down and i had a toothpick broken, halfway in my foot. I pulled it out and there was blood halfay up the longest peice. I didnt think it was that big of a deal. When I got in my car, i felt it stinging. I looked at it and it was bleeding, swelling, and turning red all around it. I told and showed my dad. We went back in so he could see where it was and to see if I was telling the truth. Sure enouph when we went in, there was trash, gum, papers, and the bloody toothpick. We told the people and they filed an accident report on it. They took pictures of the toothpick and my foot. When we got home, we cleaned it very, very, very well and i took a shower. It was bad enouph to file and accident report and take pictures of it. The next day it was still stinging. So i looked at it and it was infected. Im going to the doctor soon.
