I'm very rarely ill but when I am it's memorable. The most memorable was this one. But I've also had a wisdom tooth infection which locked my jaw shut - I could only be fed through a straw and worked for a season as a ventriloquist. Well, not exactly the latter but for three days I talked like one.
At the moment I have flu like symptoms and an abscess spreading across the roof of my mouth from a tooth. Like all 'real' men' I am treating the discomfort with the stoicism of a five year-old.
