Or...coincidence, although that sounds too much like superstition and I'm trying really hard to avoid that. Anyway, cool...but not so much...story.
Sometime within the past two days (maybe Monday, maybe Sunday--I can't recall now), in the course of normal random conversation, Theo asked me for the "name" of the flap of cartilage in front of the ear canal. Puzzled, I said that I wasn't sure--that it most likely *has* a name, but that I didn't know it.
It's a tragus, folks. I learned this while reading up on Swimmer's Ear at 3 AM (self-diagnosing, alas).
Ah, learning when you least expect it. LOL and sigh.
