Keep Me From Backsliding (With Fingers) ..... [good Hygiene/Grooming? ; Personal; Very Short; Limerick; A Little Humor? ] - Poem by Bri Edwards

It once was my unsightly habit
to gnaw skin near my nails like rabbit.
Fingers look better now;
use fewer band aids. Wow!
If hand to mouth I raise, please grab it.

(February 2006)

    I used to know someone like this. Unfortunately he can no longer that any more. Maybe you need special gloves? ? (Report) Reply

    Hey ole Bri!
    Long time no ''see''.
    Anyways, if you're indicating that you have the habit of biting your nails, you're not the only one!
    Short, and, as always, silly as can be. Unlike my hyperactive sister, I have the sense to glue myself to my chair!
