There Are No Ants In My Pants

May 24, 2012

A few days ago I flushed out my ears (what, you mean you don’t flush yours?).  I had never done it before, but since quitting Q-tips I have wondered if my ears are just stockpiling wax. I was expecting to wash away some chunks, sort of like what I’d see with my netipot, only ear gunk.  I was disappointed when nothing came out.

Yesterday, however, when I was walking Arthur like a good doggie-parent despite having sore calves and feet, my left ear was being tickled from within.  It tickled off and on for three miles, and I couldn’t wait to get home and flush it out.  I was sure that the biggest wax chunk in history was to land in my bathroom sink.

What I got, was an ant.

For reals.

I don’t know what can be said about this, other than that your childhood fears that bugs can crawl in your ears when you are sleeping are justified.

That there speck is an ant. Drowning.

    Oh my!! That’s awful; I was working in the yard today and I swear a gnat flew into my ear and it got stuck bc it tickled…yuck! BTW, the hubs has to get his ears professionally flushed out and the 1st time he did it, a quarter sized ball of wax came out of both ears, each!! Dis-gust-ing!! But it was so funny, bc afterwards, he commented on how loud everything was–he had no idea he could hear his shirt ruffle in the wind!

    Have a great weekend!!

    That is SO GROSS! I read an article that said we swallow an average of three spiders per year because they crawl in our mouths while we sleep (my scalp is tingling just writing that), and ever since I’ve tried to block out any thought of anything being able to access the inside of my head in any way.


  3. […] Yes.  It is, indeed, another ant. […]
