  2. Do you have anything you made?Not anymore :SI had a little thumb I used to keep on a keychain that was made from a knot from a pine wood board and a popsicle stick (for the fingernail), but many people thought it was too macabre.

  3. Did you learn by practicing on bars of soap at first? Or did you go right to wood? I tried with soap and sneezed a lot (from the scent, I guess) so it didn't go well…but I was a kid. It always seemed like a great thing to be able to do.Sorry your thumb is gone.

  4. You have done Quite a few things on that list!The thumb..reminds me of Angulimaal's story. He was a bandit who killed people and wore their fingers in a garland around his neck. Then something happened and he turned into the saint Valmiki and ended up writing the Ramayana.Personally, I'd take the thumb. 🙂
