Dave!So this morning I wake up and cut the bandage off my finger to see if I'm leaking. It hurt pretty bad in the middle of the night, so I thought I might have ripped it open or something.

Much to my surprise, it looked a lot better. It had shrunk a bit.

Thinking I might let it breath for a while, I left it un-bandaged and started into my morning work.

Then I packed up for Davecago 3 and hopped in the shower... completely forgetting that I had a wild-ass gash in my finger. By the time I realized it, my shower was over and I was shocked to see my gaping wound was disappearing! Here's a before and after...

Dave's finger is healing... wound is much smaller now!

I probably won't even get a cool scar to impress the ladies!

This pretty much confirms what I have suspected all along... I am a mutant.

All I need now is a costume and some accessories...


Now I'm off to play around in downtown Chicago... one of my most favorite places to be a mutant.

    For just a split second I thought that I was on Avitable’s blog. Then phew I saw it was your finger. Have a great time, maybe when the dollar is better we can have a Daveeurope ?.

  2. John says:

    UGHH! Dude! You really DID cut part of your finger off! I believe that injury qualifies for some Class A narcotics. Glad it’s on the mend. Drink til the throbbing stops in Chicago. : )

  3. Justin Scott says:

    I totally called it, you are the wolverine and you even made an adorable cartoon haha. Great minds…

  4. serap says:

    Thanks for all the cool photos Dave, you have definitely impressed this lady! If I lived near you and knew you I would have put butterfly stitches on for you… I’m good like that.

  5. kyle says:

    all the great guys are mutants. we have a secret club, and handshake.

  6. Chag says:

    But will you be using your super powers for good or evil?

  7. Scooter says:

    Ouch…You should cut the whole thing off and get another at…a second hand store.

  8. Winter says:

    Wolverine is totally hot. I can so see you as a mutant. 😉 Do you think it will get you more girls?

  9. RW says:

    You will notice I never once looked at your finger the whole time. But the meetup pics are up!

  10. Matt says:

    Ow ow ow ow ow!!!!! I’m glad it’s healing!

    Have fun in Davecago. That’s my hometown (originally)!

  11. i am a mutant – factor v leiden genetic mutation makes my blood wanna clot. not in a good way, though. stupid 6″ blood clot in my leg. blech.

    but i always considered myself like a teenage mutant ninja turtle as opposed to an x-men mutant.

  12. Greeneyezz says:


    I had to read the prior posts to update myself on what happened.

    Ow Dave! you did take off a Chunk O’ Skin, didn’t you?!

    Hope you have a speedy recovery.


  13. Stacey says:

    Despite your finger healing itself at an accelerated pace, it STILL looks like it hurts like a bitch.

  14. joy says:

    Awesome. I’m more like Rogue, because I steal people’s heat by putting my freezing hand on them 🙂
    Although, I do have metal in my back hehe.

  15. Iron Fist says:

    Chicago has always been especially tolerant of the mutant community.

  16. Radical! Super healing powers. Wow!

  17. michelle Jacobs says:


    but kinda cool!!!

  18. My 11 year old daughter says you can’t be wolverine because she is. The speed in which her whopping black eye healed (9 days from swelled shut to back to normal) was astounding.

    Either that or you’re both mutants.

    I still say you should flip everyone off and say, “See!” But then I’m 12. ;D
