After fishing this weekend I had climbed up to the cabin I was living in for the last 3 weeks. I had set my fishing pole on the rack, put the tackle box in the closet, and then proceeded upstairs to hop in the shower.
As I was scrubbing the day off my tanned hyde, I noticed a little bump on my left hand. On the base of my palm grew a thick piece of skin and I knew immediately what it was. I had these before when I was a little kid and it took me back to my frog catching days. I had become victem of the mighty wart.
After my shower I called my brother. He works with animals and frequently gets all kinds of weird bugs and ailments. It was because of this that I was recommended a product called wartrol. He said that it was made primarily from plant extracts and it worked fast. I took his advice and applied as recommended.
About a week later I notice significant reduction in size which was a blessing. I have had these things hang out on my fingers for months before. At about week two it was almost completely gone. The next time I saw my brother, he had a shit-eating grin that had "I told you so" written all over it.
I patted him on the back and proceeded to buy him a happy mean at McDonalds. I love my brother and thank him for the information, but if he thinks he isn't going to get a sarcastic "thank you" then he is sorely mistaken.
The bottom line to this story is to try out wartrol if you ever have a wart. It works and is pretty fast acting. Also note that apparently you can get warts from fish... who knew?
