Something gross

I've had a lot of earwax in my right ear for a while; if I sleep wrong, it collects over my eardrum and I can't hear for a while. I've been leery of cleaning it out, because I've had terrible ear infections in the past, some of which have involved perforated eardrums. But I couldn't get in to see a doctor when it was at its worst, so I've just been living with it.

While I was sick a couple of weeks ago, my ears and sinuses got stuffed up. Right at the end of the illness, my right ear suddenly started expelling huge quantities of earwax. Dark, disgusting earwax. I used some q-tips -- carefully -- and now my ear is completely back to normal no matter how I sleep. I am profoundly happy about this.

Now, tell the truth: would you rather I'd just posted another meme instead of that little story?

Which is worse?
