First, the too long therefore haiku version:

My ear did that, too!
Once upon a time when a
hornet attacked me.


Sounds like a hornet or yellow-jacket. I got hit by one of those on my ear once, 20-something years ago, as I was walking out of a broadcast tower control station. I literally thought a piece of heavy equipment had swung loose and hit me across the head, WHAM! (Except without the noise, but my brain interpreted 'noise', too!) When I asked my boss what just hit me -- I was so punched-out I wondered if he had gone crazy and snapped and had hit me with a hammer or something -- he said he saw and heard the hornet (or maybe yjacket) attack, and we should get out of there before backup arrived.

He immediately took me to a clinic, where the nurse ascertained I had been stung, in that one slam-strike, at least three times, some of them on opposite sides of my ear! -- she wasn't sure one of them hadn't actually pierced my ear and gone through to the other side!

I'm allergic to everything, so that was an interesting day. Fortunately I was done for work already.

Damn Pratt - but didn’t it hurt like a mofo? I didn’t feel anything until later. Not that I’m complaining.

It felt exactly like someone had taken a 2x4 upside my ear. It was not subtle; I didn't discover it later. That being the case, maybe yours was something else.  ???

Usually when I get a ringing pain anywhere above the neck, it's my wife's left hook. She once knocked down Joe Frazier for forgetting to lift the toilet seat.

I work here.  I wish adults had a rule that said when it got above 90F, we didn't have to wear a suit and tie.

90 here today.  Worked by the river all day.  Good breeze and lots of shade.  I gotta hand it to those rich people, they know how to landscape.
