Quaint vignettes from my charming rural idyll

For the last two days I have been hearing a strange sound in my right ear; as though I could hear my heartbeat going really fast.  Except it isn't my heart beat.  I took my pulse a few times to make sure and it isn't.  This is kind of like muffled ticking.  If I stick my pinkie finger in my ear the sound goes away.  As soon as I take my finger out of my ear it starts up again. I tried to hold my nose and pop my ear, like how you do if you get water in there?  But that didn't help.  Neither did a Q-Tip.  Yes, here I am, smack in the middle of my fast paced, jet setting lifestyle, hearing sounds nobody else can hear and poking around in my ear with random objects.  I want you to think of me like this always.

Because I am still losing weight, I can now wear those jeans that, when you bend over, your entire ass hangs out.  I have a pair.  I wore them.  I bent over and my entire ass hung out.  I didn't care for it.  It was breezy.

That's pretty much it.

  1. Noises in your head and you show your arse towards the world - do it the American way! I can see nothing bad about it.

    1. Just swat them with a rolled up newspaper.

  3. Same thing happened to me.

    The ear thing, not the ass hanging out.

    I went to an ENT specialist and he said there was absolutely nothing wrong.

    Eventually, it stopped.

    For peace of mind, have it examined nonetheless.

    1. It stopped. All it took was a change in altitude and 'pop!'

  4. I've had tinnitus (buzzing/ringing in the ears) for many years now. Cause unknown (lucky me). Nothing makes it go away. I have learned to ignore it. Have you had your ears flushed out? Easy to have done at the doctor's or even by a nurse. If I lived closer by, I could do it for you. It's amazing how much crud can come out of such a tiny space!

    Good for you on the weight loss... not so good on the breezy ass. Time for new jeans, me thinks. ;-)

    1. Years and years ago I had my ears cleaned out by a doctor, who stuck this loooong thing like an aerial with a loop on the end into the side ofmy head and pulled out an object of crawling horror. I'll stick with driving up Mt. Baker! Although I thank you for the kind offer

  5. Glad it stopped. I was afraid something had crawled in there and was like, dancing, or something. Bleurgh.
