Please don't stick anything in your ear!
In class when my inside of my ear gets itchy I use a pencil and stick it inside and scratch. Is it dangerous and what side effects might happen if I keep doing it?
It's much safer to use your finger.
Don't use a pencil. You could rupture your ear drum. The covering over your ear drum was once described to me as being as thin as a rolling paper.
Last night I was using a toothpick to scratch the inside of my ear. They’ve itched non-stop for 15 years and, though my condition is curable with steroids, I would have to give up on the tiny little orgasyms I get from scratching them. Life is about balance.
The toothpicks are a new tool for me. For years, I was faithful to mechanical pencils and retractable pens. My wife loves it when she goes to sign a check and unwittingly writes her name in ear wax. Marriage is about compromise, understanding, and love, but more than anything, it’s about tolerance.
The kids were asleep and we were just about to press play on the season 4 finale of Breaking Bad.....
