It’s embarrassing when it happens on your floor (at least according to the most memorable commercials of the 70’s) but it’s downright INCONVENIENT when it happens to your ears! Yes, I speak of that nasty wax build up that accumulates in the inner ear; IMPOSSIBLE to get to, unless you’re a doctor with a teeny ear wax removal kit.
Today, I went to my doctor and told him about my slight hearing loss in my right ear and he looked at both and told me I have dry wax in my ears. Hmmm…. don’t remember putting it there. In any case, I was told to use BABY oil for a week, to soften the gunk and then he would flush it out and I would be hearing normally again.
All things considered, that’s something to be thankful for. A hearing Aid would cost two grand per ear. Baby oil, at the bargain store, costs $2.00. Guess which one I DON’T want to get. Yeah, I’ll cope with baby oil just fine, thank you! This time, next week, I’ll be able to hear myself sing . Makes me wonder if I shouldn’t just let the stuff accumulate until ….nah! My singing isn’t THAT bad.
