When I was trimming the tree in the Dog Thrad, one of the branches slid down and scratched my forearm something fierce.
What's weird is I was out in the sun cleaning everything up today and the sun hitting it made it burn.

Anyone have any ideas why?

Because it’s a scratch through your skin and isn’t skin, so the sun hitting it causes it to have a different sensation than skin would, and in this case it’s “burn”. Tomorrow it won’t be “burn”, but it’ll feel different than it does today.

It’ll either feel better or your arm will smell like rotting flesh and you’ll have to go get a shot.
