Triona's trick

Triona McCarthy

Will is the apple of my eye, but it was his banana that got me out of a really prickly situation lately!

I got a needle from the Christmas tree stuck in my thumb and, believe it or not, a banana skin helped to dislodge it. Will cut a small piece and put it over the needle using a Band-Aid. As the banana skin ripened, it produced enzymes; they helped draw out the needle, and also helped to heal the skin.
