Surfer’s Ear Sucks

ear_illustration2A few days ago I went temporarily deaf in my left ear. There is nothing wrong with my hearing. I just have something blocking my canal. It’s a boney growth called Surfer’s Ear. The last time I went in for a check-up, I was telling the doctor about Surfer’s Ear and that I have it. He was acting as if he was listening. Then he stuck his little viewing instrument in my ear and goes “whoa! I’ve never seen anything like that”. He then calls in all his nurses for them to see. Then he goes away and comes back later to tell me what’s up with my ear. I said “yeah, I know I just told you that”.

I did the math the other day, and I postponed this operation by about fourteen years by either moving to Portland and Seattle or living in Hawaii and Australia. But now that I am back on the Oregon Coast my ear is fed up. I go to Portland on Friday to visit a specialist and probably set-up an appointment to have the operation. It won’t be fun, but with my current state of being deaf in my left ear, it’s a better alternative.

    Dude, how’d you get that picture of your ear? Weird man.

    I recommend Queen’s of the Stone Age “Songs for the Deaf”.
