Imagine that you're flying. You can hear the sound of the air rushing past your ears. That only lasted two seconds, tops. Now you have just hit a wall. You try to grab on to the ledge, but your fingers are slipping. You forgot your gloves, so you can feel the skin tearing.
Just remember that if you don't have a first aid kit, lemon salt stops the bleeding and numbs the pain. Well, after about thirty seconds of pure agony.
It was late. All of the stores were closed. I didn't really have a choice.
But it worked. I was back up and running within the hour. Couldn't even feel the torn flesh on my hands.
That was actually what motivated me to start wearing gloves to begin with.
