You forgot to mention Quilly again though Jim, she's a gullet for attention. :)

When I was born, my esophagus wasn't attached to my stomach. It is actually a fairly common birth defect. I made medical history by being the first to every survive the reattachment surgery.

The story is much longer and Amoeba keeps urging me to write it, but not here, I think.

First and slower, Jim. There's room if you need it.

Haha, Nessa. Wait'll you hear today's post.

Sourer grapes, TLP?

Thanks, Terry.

Thanks, Ariel.

Wow, Quilly. I had no idea. I agree with your fella.

Sure, Icy. What flavors does Nehi come in?

Cooper, that's the undigested truth.

Oh, this word now has a scary-gloomy association in my mind, now that a dear friend no longer has one. Things we take for granted.

Postpharyngeal locus of peristaltic action.

Doug said...

How strange, Actonbell. I have a very old friend in the same predicament who I talked to last weekend and that never even came up in my mind.

Gag me, W.
