    A bug flew in my ear when I was riding Saturday. Just thought I'd share.

    The audiologist in one of my classes said that this thing happens frequently when one cleans their ears after a shower. The wax is a natural repellant.
    He suggested that cleaning just the outside and the other canal is sufficient because the wax flows outward anyway

    I just told my five year old about this, esp. the snap, crackle, pop, part. His first question was were they alive in his ear. Then his response was, ruff ruff, bam., that is what is sounds like if you have a puppy in your ear!
