Ben: And right when I put that berry in my ear I thought to myself, Oh. That probably wasn’t a very good idea.
My 6 year old put one of those sawgrass berries so far down into his ear that the emergency room doc crossed his arms and said, Huh.
But the nurse said she thought it wasn’t as bad as it looked and was confident that flooding his ear could dislodge the thing so the doc let her give it a go before he grabbed his utensiles. Lucky for Ben the irrigation worked and that berry just came right out.
Here is a picture. I put my finger next to it to give you an idea of the berry’s size. Also, it matched my fingernails perfectly. See?
However, I’m pretty sure we caught ebola or some equivilently serious disease while we were there because the emergency room was totally packed. There simply wasn’t enough hand sanitizer and now we’re doomed, I’m sure.
And yes, my nails are rockin’ it right now and I have no idea what is up with that but I’m not complaining.
Update: Although the nurse called it a sawgrass berry, my research is telling me it’s a monkey grass berry. Just thought I should clarify.
