Cleaning out my ears with Q-Tips on Saturday left me with the realization that my left ear (or if you were looking at me, my right ear) was pretty well plugged up for some reason.

I don’t think I have a hearing loss dilemma. It feels like there’s an unusually high amount of wax just inside the ear opening, so I’ll apply water to it and a few drops of hydrogen peroxide as some Google searches are suggesting.

I’ve had this happen to me before – but not for a couple of decades. It just doesn’t usually take me this long for it to go away. As many of you know, I did work in radio for a while, and there’s always the possibility that this could be a relevant factor into what I’m currently going through. I wouldn’t be astounded in the next few days there’s a (gross as this might sound) a ball of ear wax the size of a small third-world country in an unusual place.

Until then, I sense there may be a lot of “huh” and “what” in my vocabulary.

    1. Did you have a lot of it? I just think it’s one of those things that can creep up on anybody and then “holds you hostage” when you least expect it.
