Yup. The one on the right is normal, but the one on the left is short and stubby. How weird is that? This picture doesn't even do the strangeness justice, since I have the left one a little higher, but imagine if you put the two joints side by side. See how short it would is then? The thumbnail grows out really strange, too. Kind of splayed out like a fan. No acrylic nails for me! I didn't suck my thumb as a child, either. I'm just a freak.
Years ago I worked in a photography studio in a mall. Right next door was, of all things, a shop that..um..told fortunes, did palm readings, that kind of thing. OK--the shop didn't do the telling. The lady who rented the space did. But I digress. I'm certainly not into that whole palmistry thing, but because of the layout of this particular section of the mall, everyone there got to know each other. Story short: She took a glance at my thumbs one day while we were sitting on the bench together at lunch, and she said they were "criminal" thumbs, and that in a past life I probably spent a good portion of my time behind bars! *Insert eye roll here*
Anyway, I was visiting with my Grandma Hap one day a couple of months later, and she said, "I see you have my thumbs." And yes, hers were the same! Now instead of thinking how ugly they are, I can have a little reminder of Grandma with me wherever I go. And I DO have bragging rights as the person with the strangest thumbs around!
