Have you had a tonsillectomy?

I had my tonsils out when I was 10. My face was never the same. It’s considered major surgery. My mother would do nothing to help me heal.

No, I have not.

Yeah, when I was a kid.

Lucky you. I often wondered why they never treated tonsillitis with antibiotics. I know this was in the 50’s but penicillin was available.

Did you get a lot of help recovering?

It didn’t change my face in the childhood photos I have from my grandmother. Look the same before and after. Started catching more colds after they were out, that’s for sure.

I had it done in the 80s. I just remember eating a lot of ice cream because my throat was sore and the cold felt good.

You know what really screwed up my face? Getting old.

My mom wouldn’t do anything special like ice cream. I think sick or sore kids scared her away.
