So – I got a nifty phone – and I love it a whole bunch – even though it has miserable reception – and with the latest sofware update it actually stopped being able to get email. It is all a big stew that I love to eat that makes me a total glutton for punishment.

Well – now my left ear has given out – and that is really just too much. Last night while walking the pup around I noticed that the ear piece kept falling out of my left ear. I was confused as to how something that had always fit so snuggley and perfectly could just stop.

My right ear started glowing at how well it was doing at holding onto the ear bud.

I started twisting and turning and jamming the thing into my ear – because I was really frustrated with this new predicament. But then – I finally had to just give up and let it hang there – all sad – and threatening to ruin the whole party by trying to pull the right ear piece out . . .

Well today – I was q-tippin’ my ear and – ye-ouch!!! It hurt. So I did a little “let’s see what’s going on here” and found that there was a big old bump in my ear. Now – did I cause this bump – or was it there last night – and was the cause of all of my woes?

Maybe I’ll never know . . . but what I do know is that I now have a phone that barely calls, won’t check email and only 1/2 of the amount of sound thata it originally had . . . what in the world could be next?
