English term or phrase:get a splinter
There are two phrases I use that I'd like to know how to say in Spanish:
1) I got a splinter/sliver.
2) Be careful not to get a splinter.
Note: I believe "astilla" is the correct term for "splinter/sliver", but I'm not sure how to express the idiom "get a splinter" in the above phrases. In English I generally use splinter with wood and sliver with glass or metal.
