The entire left side of my face looks a little like the elephant man, so I made the most excellent decision to take a sick day off work. Maybe my face isn’t quite so drastic, but it reminds me of one time when our black lab Oscar went bee-hunting in our yard. He managed to nick one, and it came back and bit his snout. He walked around looking like a deformed dog for the rest of the day. That’s my face right now – still noticeably a face, just puffier. And only on one side.
So instead of working, I watched Netflix for the hours my eye was able to stay open. I’m currently making my way through Freaks and Geeks, so it’s been almost an enjoyable day… except for the constant throbbing pain on the left side of my face, that is. By the time I thought I should maybe head to MedExpress, it was after 9pm – of course I wouldn’t think about it until they closed.
Better luck tomorrow, and if that doesn’t work out… then maybe I’ll manage to head to MedExpress before closing time.
