The Duffer has been sucking on his right foot all day, which he often does if he has one of his many delicate skin issues. I finally picked him up and flipped him over to get a better look. Turns out he stepped on chewing gum. I started out on a mere 1-2 on the grossout scale, using cotton pads and hydrogen peroxide to try to clean his paw. By the time I was done, my fingers were pulling what was apparently peppermint gum from his pads. I’ve washed my hands four times but soap’s just not cutting it. Boiling water? Acid? I’m pretty much ready to sacrifice future use of my hands if necessary.
Hey, Numbnuts out there: Stop spitting gum on the streets.
