"La, la la brushing my teeth... Swabbing out my ears... Huh, why is it extra noisy in my right ear? Oh my God, where is the cotton swab!"
Yes, this morning I had the drama of losing a Q-tip's cotton swab in my right ear. I panicked initially. Thinking that I would need to go to the ER to get it removed because who knows how far up my ear it had gone? Then, I remembered that I'm not 2 years old and only babies get stuff stuck in their orifices. Very calmly, I was able to extract the cotton with tweezers. My dignity is intact.
