The ear is still blocked. I finally got a referral for an appointment with an Ear, Nose, and Throat doc for next week, actually a week from today. I am becoming used to it, but I don't always hear the bell that alerts me to a customer. That is annoying, since I am sometimes chatting with the animals when someone enters and I am unaware until they call out. Some look at me like I am crazed, guess they think I am talking to myself. Some apologize for taking me from my family. I am usually admonishing one of the dogs for peeing in the floor as I mop it up .......
So, anyway, I was hit with an inspiration just now. I have been working in a garden all morning, pulling out the spent stalks and weeding heavily around all my plants to get them ready for a winter mulch (I have to start early, I have a whole lot of garden beds). I was determined to make it to end of this bed, since I started in the middle. I will finish the other side when the sun goes down.
But, that is not the inspiration. I was dripping wet and hot when I came in. I perused the cooler and chose a can of ice cold Coke. I don't indulge very often, but I really wanted one. I have seen all the things you can clean with coke and unclog drains with coke ..... usually Diet Coke, but still, this is some powerful stuff. I wondered for just an instant about pouring some in my ear!!!!
No, I didn't actually do it, but in mind's eye I could see it churning through whatever sits outside my eardrum and relieving the pressure in my head. I came to my senses as I went on to see it eating away at my eardrum and entering my brain. Would I then be a Coke Head??
