I get a cut on my hand and I put a band-aid on it and show it to my wife. And she says, "It’s OK, don’t worry. It’s just a little cut." The next day I take the band-aide off and show it to her and she says, "Yes, it’s really healing. It looks good." But I say, "No, it’s not." And so I pop it open again. I squeeze it open until it bleeds. "Look how bad that is!" And she says, "Yeah, that is pretty bad, let me take care of you." I wanted some sympathy, some attention there, finally I got it. But what’s even worse is that you opened it up. I would never do that with a physical cut.
