My ears are cold.


May 21, 2010

I think something might be wrong with me.


Because my ears get really cold when a draft rushes past them, and then they start to sting and cause my brain to hurt.

Here are times this has happened:

  • While riding a bike
  • When I’m jogging
  • When it’s windy
  • When I’m on the Dumbo ride at Disneyland and the temperature is less than 72 degrees fahrenheit.
  • And when I’m streaking past your mamma’s house at 2 a.m.

I’ve never talked to a doctor about it, but I’m pretty sure it’s my body’s way of making sure my brain doesn’t leak out of my ears when the wind kicks up. Because wind can totally blow the brains out of some one’s ears if it’s strong enough. I saw it once on a Youtube video, and Youtube videos don’t lie.

But instead of running indoors where the wind can’t get my precious brain, I hide my ears under various pieces of clothing.

Most times I look quite fetching, wouldn’t you agree?

um, yikes. I look freaky. But at least my ears are safe and warm.

Olivia Newton John video? Nope, just chilly ears.

You’d think I’d get smart and buy myself a pair of ear muffs.

But I can’t commit, because I haven’t seen any that I really like.

Until I saw these bad boys:

Man, I’ll bet her ears never get cold, and her brain stays in her head, right where it belongs.


I can’t believe how many pictures you have on hand of your ears covered! Awesome.

Do other Canadian’s ears get cold or just yours? I thought Canadians were kinda like bullet proof.

Julie, I know, right? My husband thinks I look strange when my ears get cold, so he inevitably takes a picture in my vulnerable state.

Mike, eh?

Why are you so dang cute in all those ear coverings? And I agree with Julie.. you have a lot of ear covering pictures. But I would too if I looked that dang cute in them!

And those earmuffs look so much like boobs men would actually look you in the eye!

That is hilarious! I’m all about the ear warmers for running and what not. I have something for you to try…just go with me on this…it’s weird but awesome for warming your ears up. I tuck them. I might have to show you in person for you to truly understand but basically you fold your ear inside your ear. It works like a charm and I use this technique frequently (whenever my ears are cold or when i’m nervous).

Happens to me too, it’s really unpleasant 🙁

The same thing happens to my ears too!!! When I tell people about the symptoms they just look at me funny like they’ve never heard of such a thing. It’s an unsolved mystery!

My mom and I have this same issue. Toilet paper stuffed in each ear works wonders. Please, like you’re above doing that…
