EAR WAX FOLLOW UP!
I was really touched and weirded out about all the feedback I got on my earwax problem!
People really were worried about my condition, and I received many phone calls and emails:
Gorgeous Gary sent me a link: http://www.essortment.com/lifestyle/safelyremoveex_smow.htm
and Sweet Sweet Justin sent me this:
At 1:45am Monday night I was on the N train home and my ear finally unclogged. It was like I had never heard so much sound in my life.The N train passing through the tunnel was like a lullaby.
Hours later I stuck a Q-tip in the ear and clogged it up again. But it seems to be better now.
On a side note: everyone is telling me that sticking Q-Tips in your ears is a self-abusive thing to do. I am so confused because Q-Tips are long and thin with a cotton ball on the end...the design itself suggests "jam my in your ear canal you freak!" Whatever.
I learned that ear wax prevents infections, so suck it Q-Tip.
