I like visitors and word search puzzles

What is wrong with me? Today I think I have appendicitis. Honest to God. I have had a pain in my side all day. I have become quite the hypochondriac in the last 48 hours.

But here's what tickled me. I asked four people what side the appendix is on. Three said left; the other said not to worry, it's just gas. So I texted my friend Wendi, who happens to have a medical degree. She said right. Oh no, said my impromptu focus group. It's left. Google it. OK, so you believe Google, but not the real-life doctor? It's the right side, by the way. Google says so. Strangely enough, Google lists shoulder pain as a symptom. Hmmmm . . .

My next post will either be from here or my hospital room. Place your bets.

  1. I don't know whether to tell you that this is hilarious or worry that you're in the hospital now. Please don't keep us waiting. I guess if you're in the hospital, you'll have to tell Big Dog how to update the Hoop-lah.
