I have been a fingernail biter / chewer for as long as I can remember (well over 30 years now). I know it serves no purpose and makes me look nervous, immature, etc. I have tried to stop more times than I can count. I've made it months before, but I always end up nibbling them down to the soft tissue eventually. Even when I clip them regularly, I still find myself chewing them.
I have done a good job to not chew them in front of my children, because I don't want them to pick up this stupid habit. And thus far that has been a success. Which got me to thinking ...
- My hands are fairly smallish compared with someone my height, and my fingers are definitely shorter than they naturally should be.
- My oldest son, 13 at the time of this post, is already on par to exceed me in height ... and his hands are already as big as mine ... AND ... his fingers seem to me to be freakishly long (they are probably normal sized).

It is the only rational explanation.
I wonder what it would have been like to have full-sized hands. :)
Song Of The Day:
Any post about hands would have allowed me to use the great song
"Hands To Heaven" by Breathe, but this was the first post I could think of about hands. Perhas one day, after this life is over, I will no longer be trapped in a fingernail chewing habit AND I might even get a regular-sized pair of hands to use. That seems fair.
