Mephitis mephitis, Philosophiæ Doctor

The past week I've been a little sick, but with what I don't know. I usually get a cold each year and when I woke up unable to talk I figured it was time again. For me, resp infections pretty much always start with post-nasal drip on day 1 and don't show any other symptoms until day 2, but I went 4-5 days with nothing else other than my throat, except sneezing twice. But my throat was gnarly, especially on one side where I couldn't let food touch or open my mouth all the way w/o wincing.

I'd been nursing a bottle of chloraseptic, but it stopped helping yesterday so I went in for a deeper look in the mirror and found what looked like a tonsil stone right where the pain was. I took a curette and, with a flashlight, scooped it out like a 2nd-trimester abortion and spat it into the sink with minimal bleeding. When I woke up today the pain was only about 25% of the days before and I can eat just fine. I've never had a tonsil stone so I don't know if it actually was one or just some nast stuck to/exuded by my tonsil, but it sure seemed to be what was putting the hurt on me.

I got another bookshelf, desk, and wine rack yesterday also; boss.
