I just drove back from my doctor’s office…with BOTH HANDS!!!  I am not out of the sling.  The following is a transcription of the conversation going on in my head right now:


David’s Id, “I am going to celebrate tonight!”


David’s Ego and Super-Ego, “How so?”


Id, “By dousing the sling in gasoline and setting it on fire!!!”


Ego, “I wouldn’t do that.”


Super-Ego, “Hrrrmmmm.  Could be fun if not entirely logical.”


Id, “Shut up, I’m burning it.”


Ego, “Well, with the Fuller propensity for injury being considered, you may want to reconsider; you never when we may need it again.”


Id, “Ugh!”


Super-Ego, “You are probably right.  However, if and when we need it again I am sure we will be charged for a new one.  BURN THE STINKING THING!!!”


Party tonight!


My Visit to the Doctor

I went to the doctor yesterday in an attempt to rid myself of this ridiculous cough.  He decided to take some blood and flush out my ear as well.  Apparently, I have a lot of “build up” on my left ear drum.  No problem, right?  WRONG!!!  I should have seen it coming, what with the volunteer fire department pulling their truck up to the front door and them bringing the hose into my room.  I had no idea the kind of pressure I was in for.  She (the nurse) blasted me not once, not twice, not even five times.  I lost count somewhere around ten times. 


When she was finished blasting my inner ear with water she stuck some medieval torture device in my ear canal to scrap the walls.  “I am going to have the doctor look at you to see if this is good enough”, she says. 


“Uhhh, okay.”


She left the room.  I sat there for about six seconds, ears ringing, then promptly lost my balance and passed out on the bed.  Next thing I remember was the doctor coming into the room (several minutes later I assume).


Next time I have a cough I think I am going to buy some children’s Robitussin, drink hot tea with honey, curl up on the couch with my favorite teddy bear and watch some cartoons.
