One recent evening, Claire found herself carrying out some general maintenance and grooming of my face. Yes, she really does do that on what is probably an alarmingly regular basis.

Part of my preening treatment involved tackling my ears with a cotton bud – also known as a Q-Tip, depending on which side of the Atlantic Ocean you live.

This is the first time in as long as I can remember, that my lugholes had been cleaned. It was therefore of little surprise when Claire managed to dig out far too much ear wax than is healthy to find inside any human.

I must say, the vast majority of the retrieved wax came from my right ear – the left had managed to remain relatively clean.

The good news is that since emptying my right ear of all that nasty filth, my hearing has improved!

I never struggled to hear people talking to me, and certainly didn’t consider myself to be deaf, but since the clear out, a whole new world of sound has been made available to me – some welcome, some less so – for example, when Claire watches television in the bedroom at night.

The wax would once act as a natural earplug. Now I have to fall asleep to the sounds of Keeping Up Appearances and Vicar of Dibley. Both excellent, classic comedies, which I love – during the daytime!

As for the huge lump of wax retrieved from my ear – I’ve already found somebody to make use of it…

You’re welcome, Mr. Yankee.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
