Six Word Saturday and why Q-tips are verboten..

It's time again for six word saturday ala Cate at showmyface.com Here it is:

Pain in ear and in rear...

That's right, I have a throbbing right ear AND I've been a pain in the rear all week about trying to get people to blog about, send healing thoughts to, and pray for Chris Bernal at UCLA. Click here please for info about Chris and his family:

Now, I have a confession to make about this pain in my ear.

It isn't swimmers ear.
It isn't air pressure ear.
It's stupid girl ear.

That's right. I'm the stupid girl who uses Q-tips exactly how they say you shouldn't use them. IN MY EAR! For years I've dug around in my ears for wax like an archeologist searching for a new mummy. There is always the motherlode of wax in my ears... like I could start a candle factory amount. Okay, I know that's Too Much Information but I'm turning this post into a public service announcement. STEP AWAY FROM THE Q-TIPS!!! Do not use them at all, because frankly, if you can't shove them into your ear what else are they good for?

Ahhhh, I feel so much better now.

Hugs and slight ringing in my ear love,

Jan

I have my doctor's permission to stick q-tips in my ear! Mostly because I have some sort of itchy ear issue and it's the only way to apply the cream that makes it better.

I feel like such a rebel.

Hope your ear feels better soon!

I am so jealous... can I go to your doctor and get a note?

I have an ear obsession too! I love Q-Tips. My husband gets a lot of dry skin buildup in his ears, and it makes me insane when I can see it!

Hope your ear gets better!

I don't use q-tips. Too many problems.

I just dumped the q-tips but am now digging with my fingernails... I don't believe that is a good thing, is it...

Hope the ringing stops - that would drive me insane!

Oh my gosh, Jan, I too have used Qtips in the WRONG way! And I ended up pushing wax too far into my ear and it got impacted and I had to have it irrigated to dislodge it! GROSS!! I feel your pain (and hear your ringing). :o) Thanks for stopping by my blog today. You are lovely.

There, but for the grace of god, go I. Maybe if I just stick to the very opening? Please?
