My fingers are crayons.
Yes, you read that right. I just said my fingers are crayons. In their absence are ten long sticks of beautifully-colored wax like the kind my cousins and I use to color in our books, some even have the Crayola paper still attached! My left hand has light colors, my right hand has dark colors. Even as I type this, my black licorice keyboard melts into colliding hues of galaxy blue, macoroni yellow, and jungle green.
I know exactly how weird it must sound, but after my initial shock, I learned that I quite enjoy my new digits. I don't have to look for a pen or pencil to write anything down. Plus, it is a great conversation starter. Take for example my neighbor down the hall, Mrs. Cavendish. She had been married for years to a combat veteran, who died last year after wandering away from his caretakers, but always enjoyed any company that came to her. She loved my new fingers! I drew her some pictures while she made me tea and asked all about how it happened. After finishing our tea, we decided to continue our chat back at my apartment.
The police are knocking now, determined to come in and take away my beautiful fingers. I tried to awaken Mrs. Cavendish to help protect me, but it seems that a heart attack has taken her already. How ironic is it that she died next to what is left of her husband?
