so… um… i was cleaning my ear (with a properly designed tool for the action) in the shower — and I see what I believe is a long hair on the shelf…

so while continuing the grooming process, i grab the end to send it down the drain… or what I believe to be the end of the hair.

turns out I’d grabbed the leg of a mosquito eater — and I received a perfect jump scare — jabbing the ear cleaning apparatus deep into my canal.

PAINFUL!!

my first concern was that i’d just ruptured my eardrum… that apparatus was deeply embedded. but i soon realized i’d be in a lot more pain if that had happened.

So — I scrapped my ear canal up pretty good.

it will heal; and it could have been a lot worse!
