@Ticomaya,
It's not a dictionary word, I made it up. However, it is a 'word' and, more specifically an adjective. I thought that was obvious. I do that, it amuses me; I also tend to enjoy word games on a2k.

@ossobuco,
I once used the phrase 'up the kazoo', made up by me as a riff on 'up the wazoo' and got quite an outburst of remonstrance. I tried to explain word play, but it fell on deaf ears.

@ossobuco,
Which brings us around to swimmer's ear - I read something recently on a2k about dabbing a dog's ear canal with hydrogen peroxide after it has gone swimming in order to ward off infection. I wonder if that works for humans..

Ahhh, looks like patiodog addresses this here - at least re dogs, and I'll extrapolate that to humans:

Mammals don 't come in neuter gender.

Ears is tricky. Got to be very careful, said edgar, twirling a q-tip around in one.

Yeah if they did go for a swim, you probably could flush out their ears with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water the next time you take them for a swim. Should check with a vet to see if what proper mixture or alternative liquid you could use postswim time to prevent further infections.

My doctor at the VA told me to clean out my ears with half peroxide and half warm water solution. The peroxide part of the solution is the disinfecting part of the solution.

@OmSigDAVID,
I would of course call it him or her if I knew the gender.

Returning to that thread I found a slightly disconcerting unintentionally and personally relevant note...

Untreated ear infections can lead to the dog going deaf.

Regarding my own ear infection, I'm concerned about this considering my next ear appointment is on the bloody 18th of January (appointment with an ear specialist). I have yet to get any antibiotics for my ear infection. Should I be worried?

Well, we know for sure, that the gender cannot be neuter in a mammal.
