I had a childhood flashback last night. I think I must have been about 9 or 10 years old. At the time, I was really into building car models, mostly old muscle cars, but occasionally newer cars of the time as well. I had this grey Indy Pace Car Mustang that I had built and I think because it was one of the ones that came out really well, I displayed it on my dresser in my bedroom. Here’s where the flashback takes an odd turn. One morning I woke up and there was something in my ear. I remember freaking out and thinking it was a bug, but since it wasn’t moving I quickly realized it wasn’t a bug. After some deft manuvering the mystery “thing” revealed itself – a positively ENORMOUS cluster of ear wax. Gross, yes. I had never seen anything like it. It was sort of hard and dry and I wasn’t sure what had really happened. So not knowing if it was important or not (hey, maybe the doctor needed to put it back in?), I placed it gently into the passenger side seat of the Mustang model, where it must have stayed for months.

There. Have a nice day.
