I think I can. If I tape an exacto blade to the end of a stretched-out hanger, I think I can snip the little suckers myself. If the weird stabbing skin pain doesn't go away by tomorrow, I will do it. Don't tell anyone.
I'll try and post a new photo of my purple toes and brand-new white cast tomorrow, if I can locate my camera. I think someone hid it so I wouldn't crawl around looking for it. Actually, the cast isn't a cast, but a half-splint (plaster) covered with ace-bandages. I've already snipped off the ends of the cotton stuffing because the tickle was driving me mad. Don't tell anyone.
