Well Thats One Way To Lose 6 Pounds In 3 Days I Went Diving On The 1st And By Wednesday I Realized I Ha

Well, that’s one way to lose 6 pounds in 3 days… I went diving on the 1st and by Wednesday I realized I had an ear infection. Went to the Doctor and got drops. No biggy. And then Thursday, it was like my head exploded: both ears swelled entirely shut, stabbing pains throughout my head (lots of nerves in the ear… oh yeah!), and my temperature went over 102! For the next 48 hours I would sleep for an hour and then be awake for a half an hour of pain and then fade into sleep again. It was wild; I didn’t know ear infections could be like that. I still can barely hear, but the fever’s broken and I can eat again. Oh, and yes, of course, this was on the eve of the end of a project for a first-time client: “Uh, I have to call in sick today…”

The good news is that when I was lying in a stupor the FedEx guy dropped off my copy of Borland’s C# Builder. That I haven’t installed it yet is proof enough that I was really, really sick. Stay tuned for reactions in the coming days…
