All You Wanted to Know about Ear Wax


My Children Are LUCKY!!! They get to write a report each week on something vitally important to practice their writing skills over the summer. This weeks subject is .....Ear Wax. Here is Tiffany's offering.


Ear Wax
By Tiffany Gibbons

Ear wax is a very important part of a healthy body, although most people try to get rid of it.
Ear wax is also called ceriman by people who actually know what they’re talking about. It is produced in the outer ear canal. Earwax protects and moisturizes the ear canal, so that the ear is not dry and/or itchy. It traps dirt that has evil plans to cause infection.
You shouldn't try to get rid of your ear wax, because it is essential to an earache-free life. If your hearing is affected by wax, go to a professional for help.
Never use Q-tips or needles to get rid of ear wax; this can:
1-damage the eardrum (not fun!!!!!!!)
2-pack wax farther into ear

For most people, wax is a liquid and drains itself. When it acts like a liquid, it is usually fine. Adults produce less ear wax that children do.
Ear wax is a good thing that everyone has. Most people try to get rid of it. That’s like getting rid of a good friend. That’s like peanut butter getting away from jelly. That’s like Bella getting away from Edward. They need each other to live!

Bella and Edward! Bwahhh! I think Bella's the earwax in that story: annoying, but necessary to the plot.

P.S. That'll teach me to eat at my computer. Nice picture. *urp*

Today we hosted our first-ever live Q & A on PurseBlog. We are going to make this a reccurring thing we do because so many of you participated, so thank you for replica handbags coming by with your questions! One of the questions that legitimately made me laugh out loud (because I could not think of the answer!) was posed by madelanie; she asked: Amanda was able to answer replica handbags uk and said “I’d save my Fall 2011 Proenza Schouler PS1; it’s black leather with a seasonal textile over it, so it’ll never be made again. It was the bag I carried for most of my first two years living in cheap replica handbags NYC and I have a lot of love for it!” I, on the other hand, still can’t think of which bag I’d want to save. I probably have ten bags that hold significant memories for me, and it louis vuitton replica makes it hard to think of which I would pick. So while I keep thinking of my answer, I want to turn to you: if you could only save one bag from your collection, which would it be and why?
