Monster in My Head

October 19th, 2016

I decided to sleep under the stars. Big mistake. I woke up in screaming pain, with a loud buzzing in my ear. I couldn’t stand it. My scout master drove me down to the nearest hospital where the nurse took one look at my ear and told me they’d need to do an ear irrigation Manchester.

They sat me up, stuffed a tube in my ear and filled my head with fluids. The room spun, I threw up on the floor, and they did it again, and again, and again, until finally the doctor went in with a camera and a tiny vacuum.

“Oh, crap,” he sighed, “hold still.”

Five minutes later, the buzzing stopped, sound returned, and the doctor showed me a dead hornet.

Yes, sleeping under the stars was a big mistake in August. A hornet tried to make a home in my ear.
