One time when I was like twelve or something, I went on a family trip to the beach. At the beach house we rented, there was this old, kind of janky wooden hot tub. I enjoyed hanging out in the hot tub, because hot tubs are fun. But I must have put my head underwater too many times, because after a couple days I developed a terrible pain in my ear that wouldn’t go away for like a week and required my mother to drip medication into it for several days.
Otitis is really unpleasant.
