Later that same day, it felt like my left eye socket was bruised. Which again, didn't make sense because One) I sleep on an air mattress, and Two) if not there, I'm sleeping on the biggest, softest, and most comfortable couch in all of couchdom! So WHY WAS IT HURTING?!

So, it may be a while before I can get those out. Sorry 'bout that. (Though I can still listen to the
