Betsy showed us her friend recently. Betsy’s friend is very straight. My friend on the other hand is a little crooked. I have a friend that looks like Betsy’s but I find my crooked friend is much easier to use. This is actually the second friend I’ve had that looks like this, the first one I lost in the move to NM. Now I don’t recommend surgery as they are used to remove sutures so you can get a pair of these but the next time you are at the dr, ask the nurse if they have a pair you can have. They are disposable after all and if you purchase a pair at the drug store it will cost you approximately $15, free is so much better.
