feelin' snappy

I'm taking some new meds and we're watching carefully for allergic reactions--given that I've had some rather spectacular allergic reactions in the past few days. So after taking a new type of pill I called John in to tell him that it was making me kind of itchy especially under my left armpit.

After I scratched there a bit (yah, I know I'm not supposed to scratch, but I do it anyways), I realized that there was a metal snap in my armpit.

"Can you take a look at this?" I said, lifting up my arm (and do keep in mind that looking into the armpit of a woman who is unshaven and unshowered for the past week is not for the faint of heart).

"Yep, it's a snap," John said as he peeled off the adhesive metal electrode that must've been left there after my surgery.

John then took a peek into my right armpit.

"There's a USB port in that one, but I'm going to leave it there. Because you know that could come in handy later."

Oh, seriously useful! You can just upload your blog posts and podcasts directly from your nervous system onto the interwebs, no tiresome typing or talking necessary. Brilliant!

hee hee hee

Hopefully they didn't use snaps to close any of your various cuts and pokes. There's a limit to how much easy access you want to grant these people. ;)

After surgery once, they accidently left a couple of staples in my head. It was weird for me.

Jana,
I laughed so hard!
Seriously, though, I'd love to have a USB port in my armpit. That would be extremely useful.

hahahahahaha!
yes, that does sound like it would come in handy!
(I wonder how much that upgrade costs.)
