Having a late breakfast at Panera after my doctor's appointment this morning. If you've never had your ear flushed out, it is a singularly odd experience. The nurse removed a waxy blockage about half an inch long from my ear canal, which answers the question of why my ear felt congested.

@authorchrislester I had that done about a year ago. We were going to see a jazz trumpet guy that night and I woke up not able to hear out of one ear.

It's supremely odd, but it was a relief. I thought maybe I was going to be deaf in one ear.
