I’m taking some new meds and we’re watching carefully for allergic reactions–given that I’ve had some rather spectacular allergic reactions in the past few days. So after taking a new type of pill I called John in to tell him that it was making me kind of itchy especially under my left armpit.
After I scratched there a bit (yah, I know I’m not supposed to scratch, but I do it anyways), I realized that there was a metal snap in my armpit.
“Can you take a look at this?” I said, lifting up my arm (and do keep in mind that looking into the armpit of a woman who is unshaven and unshowered for the past week is not for the faint of heart).
“Yep, it’s a snap,” John said as he peeled off the adhesive metal electrode that must’ve been left there after my surgery.
John then took a peek into my right armpit.
“There’s a USB port in that one, but I’m going to leave it there. Because you know that could come in handy later.”
