I got stuck by a cactus 30 minutes ago, and for the love of all that's living, it's fucking excruciating! I have never dealt with cactus before. A friend gave me these large and long pieces of broken off cactus. 7 of them. I though, damn, can't let these just die. So I replanted them.
Got my work gloves on, a pair of jeans, and covered my arms. One of the bastards just barely touched my leg and went right through the jeans! I have a new respect for these things now....I've never felt such pain from such a small thing.
Sorry, had to vent . My partner thought I was overreacting, so I'm turning to the internet for solace.
