Tossed Salad Friday

Yesterday after emerging from my shower, water was trapped in both my ears. That rarely happens to me, and if it should occur in one ear, it’s a minor annoyance that resolves in a few minutes. But this was a double dose of sound-muffling, head-aching, ear-throbbing pain. I tried gravity, but gravity failed me. I created vacuums with my palms, but that was futile. Peroxide in the ears was unsuccessful, as was aiming a blow dryer at one ear and then the other. I walked around for about 70 percent of Thursday overwhelmed by the boom, swish, boom, swish of blood rushing through my head, all while the sounds made by others were drastically dampened.
In my aqua-imposed isolation, I switched my radio from NPR to sports. I didn’t give a whit about the NY Giants’ coaching change anyway, and college football is never on my radar. The subdued blather of host and callers acted as backup singers to the thundering baritone bellowing in my brain.

I missed a lot of what happened yesterday. If you find that you also need a break from the relentless catastrophe that is currently cascading above, below, and all around, I recommend you take a shower. With ears open wide.

Dasvidaniya. Have a great weekend.
