I got bad stuff in my ear again, it doesnt hurt, it just smells bad. It happens every 3 months or so. The vet says it is from the ocean water. (even though my mom does clean my ears fairly often). And every time it happens, I can't go swimming for at least 5 days. And everyone feels so bad for me. If I do the math, that translates to annually giving up swimming for 20 days in order to swim for 340 days. I have therefore decided that it is worth having bad stuff in my ear sometimes.
Today I get to go swimming again.
