New Medical Terms #2

S.E.P. = Stabbing Ear Pain is the phenomena that occurs when a runner decides that it is warm enough to run without some sort of ear covering when it is indeed not warm enough to run with bare ears. Pain sets in almost immediately upon entering a heated room and will last approximately 10-15 minutes or until ears have thoroughly thawed out.

Have you ever read "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair? A boy's ears actually break off because they've been so frozen outside without any covering. It's a fictional story but it always reminds me to put a hat on my noggin. Learn from his example, girl! :)

I think maybe it should be renamed "N.B.B.C.Ear" :o) Sounds like every morning from October through May :o)
