No, this isn’t a post about a new type of extension or tool called Glass embedded within Visual Basic.

It is, literally, about a piece of glass that was embedded in my chin for a few years, and just came out today!

Some history:

A few years ago, I was sitting in the back seat of a car that met with an accident. Unluckily, I was the only one hurt. Luckily, it wasn’t serious. No broken bones, etc.However, the window glass did crack and small (less than 1mm) pieces of glass hit my face. (Like Zao, in 007’s Die Another Day, but not that cool)

The medics on site took out as many as they could with tweezers, and the doctor took out the rest later at the hospital. However, he did warn me that some of them may have been embedded under the epidermal layer and would come out in time.

So, this all happened in 2002. And now, in 2008, i’ve had this itch in my chin for the last couple of days, and just now, a few minutes ago, this bitty glass piece comes out!

(Thats the glass piece compared to a 1 rupee coin)
