Because there have not been enough minor annoyances lately, I present for you a new inconvenience: the pinky bump. It mysteriously appeared a few days ago, just on top (and slightly on the left side) of the last joint of the pinky finger. It waxes and wanes over the course of the day, being less problematic first thing in the morning, and more so after a day of being accidentally squashed over the course of use of the finger.
Research tells me it is likely a digital myxoid cyst or ganglion. Good news is, such things usually resolve themselves (in the "medium to long term"), although they do tend to recur. In view of such matters, I shall wait for a bit and see what it does before trundling the errant digit off to the doctor's.
Poor pinky. You look funny.
