I need to cut off my ear...

ok, not exactly...

I've been nursing an ear ache since last week, went to the doctor on Friday, and found out I have an ear canal infection...gross

and its all a little white piece of plastic's fault...

Kaitlin is home for the summer from college and with her came a dorm room full of stuff...
including these cute little things called ear buds.

Now being someone who is perpetually "behind the times" (our tv still has a dial) the fact that I don't have an ipod shouldn't surprise anyone...so when these cute little ear buds suddenly appeared on the coffee table, I thought, "let's jump into the 20th century and give these cute little ear buds a try!" (I know, its the 21st century).

So, I found one of the kids ipod and popped those cute little ear buds in my ears. And what did those cute little ear buds leave behind? A cesspool of cute little bacteria in my poor ear canal.

A few days later, I asked Kaitlin, "by the way, who's been wearing your ear buds besides you?"

and she looked at those cute little ear buds and said, "Those aren't mine. I found them on the sink counter in the dorm bathroom (home to about 48 girls), and I just forgot to turn them into lost and found before I left school."

I'm going back to 20th century...

I hope you're better, Debbie. That would be really funny to read if you weren't having to suffer the ear infection. Yuck! I'll be sure to ask before I use my kids ear buds!

Oh Deb that is to funny but I know you are not feeling to good so I am not laughing. I sure hope you start feeling better. By the way Karl said that us old people should stick to our own time period as he ran to his room. Love you and hope you are feeling better.
