last time I had a stomach thing, I totally shit my pants. it's really the most undignified thing an adult human has to endure....
This was wonderful and it made me laugh so hard at my desk I started crying. I hope this was a long time ago and you're feeling better!

Ooh, this is interesting. Can't wait for future installments. I can't imagine what it would be like to have this kind of condition permanently - I had my tonsils out a couple years ago and just that temporary amount of time being unable to sing, speak, or swallow without off-the-charts pain was more than I could handle. This is such a beautiful method to conveying your experience.

Beautiful! And 'carte blanche' is a lovely name for a literary project. Neat work. :)
@nonvolleyball ahhh thank you!!! i have saved this note, a most precious treasure, since 2004.
What I like about this is that it is really smart and the arguments are unassailable. Not that the helps the morons particularly - but it helps me to know that we (annoyed women/Hairpin readers/sensible others) have good reason, logic and intelligence on our side in this endless battle with bad stuff.
Incredible. The writing is magical. Please write your memoirs.
This was so funny and also great. I loved your health pieces on the Old Hairpin, but this is probably even better.
