A brain itch
A few weeks ago, one of the guys I work with developed a stress fracture in his foot. It’s not in a cast, but he wears a special boot. One day, he was talking about his foot itching. As a guy, I laughed at him. Over the last couple of days, I’ve developed a rash on the back of my hands. At times, they are almost excruciating itchy. In an attempt to keep my mind off it, I’m wondering which is worse; having an itch that you can’t scratch because you are physically prevented from doing so, or an itch right out in the open you have to keep yourself from scratching by force of will?
