I have been battling some sort of sickness for about the last week. Minor muscle and joint aches, then some sort throat for a day, then all of a sudden I am fine, only to have it return the next day; this went on from Tuesday to Saturday last week, well, then it just hit full-bore for Saturday thru today. My throat is pretty raw and my ear began aching Sunday as well.
I almost went to the doctor last night, but c’mon, who wants to spend $100 on a doc saying “it’s probably just a viral thing, you need to wait it out?” So I saved myself $100 and told myself, “it’s probably just a viral thing, you need to wait it out.”
So, this morning my wife remembered she had some really cool drops for ear-infections. So we tried them on my ear. I say this just in the case you see me sometime in the next couple days… you might smell me before you see me actually. A couple of the main ingredients in these drops: olive oil and garlic!
Welcome to my Italian Restaurant, would you like some ear-wax Lasagna?
My throat still hurts, but weird-as-it-might-sound, my ear feels (and smells) better!
