It's been a rough week for my coworker Ginger, who in an eerie repeat of last year, got herself a problem with swelling of the pinna of her ear (the other ear this time). The swelling didn't go down, so Ginger once again has been coned. She looks like a punk rocker with her head half shaved:
Like last year, Ginger will be spending the next few weeks at a manager's house because she shouldn't be outside with her ear like that. As I noted, it's a weird case of déjà vu all over again. The real bummer this year is that we are open to the public, so Ginger won't be able to strut her stuff in front of an adoring audience. She's like the kid whose arm breaks just before school ends, who has to spend the entire summer vacation in a cast, watching the other kids splash around in the pool. She'll be getting TLC, no doubt, but it would be better for her to be gallivanting around the grounds, playing in the sunshine.
