My cold progressed from my lungs to my nose yesterday, and today has made the exceedingly painful step to my ears. I don’t think I’ve ever had a cold in my ears before. It hurts. A lot. I don’t think it’s an infection (yet) as I’ve proven historically immune to ear infections, but if this doesn’t let up by the morning I’m going to get to blow another $15 copay somewhere – likely to be told that I’ve got a cold, drink some orange juice and cowboy up for pete’s sake.
Also, I’m wiling (whiling?) away the afternoon reading through the Dooce archives, and I have just one question: why can’t I write a blog that gets advertisers that will completely pay for the livingfulness of myself, my husband, my pets, and any future children? I mean, did you know that Dooce’s website generates that much income? How is this possible? This sounds like a good gig to me.
