Indeed it is....But you started it!! Let's make it a little grosser, shall we?!
I get an ear infection every year....happens to my right ear, then my left....When I was younger I used to take a Q-tip and shove that sucker down my
ear and spin it around like a friggin candy cane cone, and if it came out all waxy brown and yellow I got this big smile on my face...and ate
it....lol - no...just kidding!
Anyways - The doctor gave me a bit of advice - Never stick anything bigger than your elbow up your ear.....Those are good words....
Like you said earlier RANT, this strange chemical waxy curd has gravity....and now that I don't go shoving things down my ears anymore, when I have
ear wax, it lets me know by gently trickling up to the end of my ear canal....Then its just a tilt of the head, a look in amazement (like how you
always look at your kleenex ater blowing your nose), then I throw it on the ground for someone to step on and say UUGHH!!
On a side note...When my father would come back from the field in his military days, he usually brought back a pair of used ear plugs that he'd throw
away.....Well one time he came back without them - This time he decided he'd use waded up pieces of cardboard.....Well he fell asleep with the
cardboard in his ears and it got lodged so far up that he couldn't pull them out....A trip to the doctor produced two pieces of cardboard that were
about half the size of a regular piece of paper that had been crumbled up and covered with his eewy gooy ear wax....
Mmmm....What's for dinner?!
