Thinner than some

Doing what I do, I have a very thick skin.  I have to.  Your critics are always more vocal than your fans, and they like to assault you with arrows and spears and bullets.  It’s best to learn how to deflect them.

But once in a while, if you’re turned just right, someone’s poorly thrown and errant spear will hit you precisely in your skin’s thinnest spot.  A minor and fleeting injury, but it still stings like hell.
