The blessings of having a mouthful of aphthous ulcers (a.k.a. canker sores):
- They make me look younger. Evidently the virus that ‘s causing them is typically active in preschoolers, not 44-year-olds.
- Gotta love any diagnosis that necessitates prescriptions of a) honey and b) “magic mouthwash.”
- It’s an amazing opportunity to learn valuable life lessons such as No matter how much you love Lindt’s dark chocolate with chili peppers, it’s a really, really stupid thing to eat when you have mouth sores.
- Getting to write about JePHTHah’s daughter (which I was yesterday) while having aPHTHous ulcers is just priceless. I think I’ll have to hit the oPHTHalmologist’s office tomorrow for the triPHTHecta. (But I’m grateful that nothing necessitates a visit to a PHTHisiotherapist. Yes that’s a real word.)
