Keep Me From Backsliding (With Fingers) ..... [good hygiene/grooming? ; personal; VERY SHORT; limerick; a little humor? ]


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.

    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!
