He was like a hangnail;
Annoying and you forgot about him until he caught you unawares.
Not to mention the fact that he also easily got infected, or should I say, he infected others like a slow poison with his charm. And you didn’t realise you’d succumb to the charm until it was too late.
The best thing to do was cut him off, or if you were like me, rip him off, just like a piece of dry sky that was hanging on the side of your nail. Sure it hurt at first and sometimes it took a long time to heal but you knew you’d never have to deal with him again.
