I have an ear infection. I haven’t had an ear infection since I was something like 8 years old. It’s absolutely undignified, to walk around pointing the opposite side of my head at people while I explain I’m half-deaf due to grody pink lumps. I only assume they’re grody pink lumps, really – the people down at student health have never had much truck with eloquent, descriptive narrative. Last week, when I went in for an evaluation of “ibuprofen and try not to fill your ear with water,” the doctor said it was pink, and it certainly feels grody.
I guess the lumps are just artistic license. They ought to connect those little ear-examiners to televisions, to prevent such wild claims. Anyway, they gave me some very attractive pills.
