What’s in Tim’s ear…?

22.Nov.2011 by Dylan McGuffin

As you might have heard, there is not an excess of activities here in Mounio. When I’m not skiing or eating or writing blogs, I’ve taken up a small pet project helping my friend Tim with a little problem. There is something blocking his left ear. We are not sure what it is, perhaps a buildup of wax from his flowing locks, or some foreign object that has been lodged inside. Could it be a bug? Or maybe a raisin? I am told that gnomes also make their home in this part of the world, and one could possibly have made a home inside Tim’s head.

No clues yet, but here are some of the dislodging techniques we’ve tried…

Conventional ear wax dissolver... No luck.

Old faithful Q-tip... nothing.

Oh a dish soap bottle filled with warm water shooting into Tim's ear... yeah that didn't work.

Really thought this last thing would work…

There has been no luck getting anything out of Tim’s ear thus far. We have determined that it is quite possibly water, but really it could be anything. If anyone has any old tyme remedies or gypsy magic that you think may help, feel free to drop us a line.

Thumbs Up

Yesterday Ollie and I were rollerskiing and I fell and jammed my thumb.  I went home and Pepa thought it would be a good idea to get it checked out to make sure it wasn’t broken.

But here’s the good part.  On the insurance form at the Urgent Care where it said occupation I wrote athlete.  And in the part where it asked if my injury happened while I was on the job, I checked yes.

I’m pretty sure that means I’m eligible for workers comp if I can’t ski.
