I thought it was going to be raining all day. This sunny and not very warm has been quite nice.

Last night after supper one side of my jaw suddenly swelled up, smarting in a weird way. I got online and found what I'm convinced is the culprit: sialolithiasis. That's 7 syllables. It could be its own line in a haiku. And I'm talkin' the long line. (For those of you playing along at home, the accent's on "thigh"--- the 3rd-to-last.)

Sialolithiasis is a salivary gland blockage. Mine's partly worked itself out, or at least retreated, as it is written that it will do. Periodically I get a tangy-smart release of flavor from that corner of my mouth.

One recommended treatment is also an insult: "go suck on a lemon."

Last night I could make it smart just by thinking of delicious food.
