Water... how I long for thee!

Just came back from my after-lunch smoke... the sun is shining, it was warm enough to roll up my sleeves, and a good magazine in my hands. Down then came the most pleasent and cute little sunshower... just a fine sprinkling of water.

I felt the desire to just stand out from under the awnings and be sprinkled by Spring's tidings.

Unfortunately, I still cannot allow my ear to get wet. Oh how I long to get this stage of my life over with. I long to feel the sprinkle of water on my head (up to now I have been using the most obnoxiously blue colored shower cap... picture this now and laugh.)

Good thing I have a doctor's appointment today at 4 PM. With hope, the packing and my one little stitch will come out. A faerie told me I should name my little stitch... I shall name it Elephant. I will finally today have my elephant go away.

Mic check mic check one two one two!

My ear is a microphone.

No, really.

Most of the packing was taken out. Apparantely there is still some within my ear that they will take out next week.

I appear to have my hearing back. But it's FUCKING LOUD!!!! Holy shit. Loud loud loud. I hear things very sensitevely now. Buses and trains make me temporarily deaf. If kids are laughing on one end of the block, I hear them on the other end as if they are right next to me.

I often wondered what Daredevil's enhanced hearing was like. Well, I would like to officially state now that his powers were bullshit. There is no way I can hear someone's heart with the deafining decible levels of NYC surrounding me. Unless his real super power was seperating out what he wanted to hear.

Obviously, my ear is still healing. The doc says it might be another few weeks before my hearing restores to "normal." OK, I can live that long.

In the meantime, talk a little softer, ok?
