Professor October 12, 2010 at 3:05 am Reply Hi Folks…Giving Gord the opportunity to drill through my fingernails was truly an unforgettable experience. A small crowd of friends and family kept encouraging Gord to drill faster and deeper. They chanted and cheered as the blood spurted. I found this to be quite disconcerting. The pain of the drill bit piercing into the nail bed was just what you might expect–exquisite. Howerver, the proceedure relieved the pressure in my two fingers, which felt like they were about to explode. The two shots of Canadian whiskey that Susanne supplied me began the healing process which continues today, one month after the mishap. I'm grateful for Gord's drilling skills. However, I can't recommend this proceedure unless you have a serious problem (like mine) or strong masochistic desires. Gord stands ready if you do.
