Sometimes I think my doctor has a weird way of practicing medicine.
On Saturday evening, I developed a swollen Parotid gland on the passenger side of my noggin'. Because nothing like this has ever happened to me before, I was justifiably a bit concerned.
I spent the day Sunday watching it swell up every time I ate something....only to subside after about 45 minutes....then to looking like I was starting to grow a 2nd head when I ate again.....and so on...repeat.
So...considering all the crap going around these days I figured I would go have it checked out this morning.
My doctor said I had a Parotid gland infection that blocked the gland from secreting saliva. By the time he was seeing me, the blockage had cleared on it's own and the swelling was down considerably.
He said I should go get the most sour candy I could find and eat a few pieces to really clear it and get everything flowing freely again.
After a rather embarrassing scene at Walgreen's because they were all out of Sour patch kids, I just settled for the Warheads.
I mean,,,What kind of pharmacy are they running anyway??......I'll bet they didn't run out of anyone else's medications like blood pressure pills or anti-depressants.

..........AND I SAY-AY.............
O.K...enough with the "Sing-along with Bubba " nonsense.
I bought Julie a new camera for Christmas and she sure seems to be getting the hang of it....wuddintcha say??
She will not have mastered her craft, however, until she can capture classic photos like her wonderful husband.
Geeez...I need to get back into this bloggin' thang...
I missed being accused of being a "player" over here. Yeah....That was me alright.
