So today in the mixed up files of mertastrophes....
...somehow, during my shower, which was a strange hoppy dance of "use the poison ivy scrub without actually touching yourself, just in case" I managed to lift the handset off the shower thingie and turn my head in such a way as to aim a good half-gallon of water directly into my ear canal.
Of the ear with the Eustachian tube disruption.
Not that my eardrum is permeable or anything. It's just. Now there's water sounds on BOTH sides of it.
