In the movie Beowulf, the monster Grendel has an achy left ear. Mine is an achy right ear. All month it has been frustrating in the fact that I don’t think I can hear all the way with it anymore and today it feels like it got worse. Maybe some errant water? A pill I stuck in my ear? Who knows. I have a full check-up next week – we’ll see then I suppose. I feel like I am ½way underwater.
