A Sinus Infection Cri de Coeur
Some ailments simply defy our sanitized medical language to properly describe the discomfort they cause. Anyone who has suffered through a severe sinus infection, for instance, knows just how unspeakably bad the pain can get.
One way to manage that pain is with humor, as this piece in the Baltimore Sun shows. The author deftly translates the occurrence of a sinus infection into a metaphor for nature vs. woman, reaching her climax with this vivid description:
I had a full-blown clogged-ears, throbbing-sinuses, aching-teeth, swollen-faced, totally miserable sinus infection. This was it. I was in Death’s waiting room, and my number (4) would soon be called. I decided to review my will, leaving everything to the cats.
We’ve all been there. When sinus infection strikes you or your family, you know it’s only a matter of time before the pain overtakes your life and sanity.
