Day 52: Getting off the Nail

The Howling Dog Story

There was a young man walking down the street and happened to see a old man sitting on his porch. Next to the old man was his dog, who was whining and whimpering. The young man asked the old man “What’s wrong with your dog” The old man said “He’s laying on a nail”. The young man asked “Laying on a nail?, Well why doesn’t he get up?” The old man then replied “It’s not hurting bad enough.”

My nails are alcohol and sugar. I moved off the alcohol nail 52 days ago. The sugar nail is next.

What are your nails?
