Having my tonsils out as a middle-aged man was not fun. It turns out the older you are, the more tonsil removal hurts. The doctors explained it as having something to do with life being unfair.
Anyway, I used to get strep throat twice a year, every year. I haven’t had it once since having my tonsils out. So it was worth the pain.
Of course, I was told that while recovering, I could eat all the ice cream I want. There are two problems with that. One was that it hurt to swallow, so you don’t want to eat anything, even ice cream. The second is that as an adult I can already have all the ice cream I want. I could go to Baskin Robbins for dinner if I want.
Suddenly, I want to do exactly that.
Note from Missy: I’ll get my shoes on, fellow adult.
