From Down Under

A bunch of us have strep throat, so there’s that. It’s like a frigging pharmacy over here with all the advil, sore throat lozenges, and medication. I’m really looking forward to the impending raging yeast infection that will pop up once I’ve finished my course of antibiotics. Super fun.

I’ve had strep throat too many times to count. I have pus all over my tonsils right now and I won’t show you the photo because it feels unethical so you’ll just have to take my word for it.

In the hopes of being distracted from the basic task of swallowing (don’t be sick), I thought I would share with you all the most interesting text conversations I’ve had in a very long time with my friend Debbie. Apparently one of her friend’s kids fell on the ice the other day and split their chin open and needed stitches, so she posted the note on Facebook which invited a string of comments from people sharing their own experiences of their own children doing the exact same thing. One lady in particular felt like posting a photo of her daughter’s healed up chin stitches which, as you’ll see here, looks exactly like a giant penis.


So then Debbie was curious about her own chin and took a photo and sent it to me.


And then I took a photo of mine and sent it to her.


Then I showed Andrew the pictures and he obliged to let me take a picture of his (chin) as well.


See? I don’t feel that sick anymore. Well, not in that way anyway.

Feel like playing? Either email, Instagram or Facebook message me a photo of your own chin penis and I will post the pictures and link up your blogs.

Wow, this blog just hit an all-time new low.

    LOL – at least you made yourself feel better! Strep is going around here too, so far none of us have it.

      I think this is why I don’t get people asking me to write sponsored posts. I can’t see Nuun or Asics wanting to be associated with chin penises. Hopefully you don’t get strep.

    OMG chin penises are the most disgusting thing ever!!!!!!!!! Thank you for brings this to our attention!!

    I am sorry ya’all are sick. 🙁 I have only had strep throat once and it is horrible. You would think I’d get sick all the time from being around kids who pick their noses all day, but somehow I do not get sick much. I really think it’s because I shower as soon as I get home from work!

    Now watch, just because I said that, I will get sick.

      Murphy’s Law! I think you should send me your chin penis as a way to break the sickness chain.

    OMG!!! LOL! dying.

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com January 28, 2016, 5:10 pm

      At least you’re not dying with a chin penis as the last post you wrote. That would be awful. That’s how everyone would remember you. There’d be a giant blown-up photo of your chin penis at the entrance to your memorial service.

    Oh my gosh, this is too funny!
    My coworker has been sick and I really hope I don’t catch it. She did get tested for strep though and it was negative.

  • Heather@hungryforbalance January 28, 2016, 5:32 pm

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Chin penis pic on its way!

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com January 28, 2016, 7:12 pm

      Oh thank God. I really can’t wait.

  • Susie @ SuzLyfe January 29, 2016, 5:15 am

    I now know that chins upside down look like noses from the top. Good to know.
    I think you live in a germ incubator, btw. FEEL BETTER

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com January 29, 2016, 8:36 am

      Ya, hopefully we’re all just “building up our immunity” or something like that.

  • Laura @ This Runner's Recipes January 29, 2016, 8:06 am

    This is so funny! I’m sick this week also, but it’s just a head cold. I hope you feel better!

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com January 29, 2016, 8:36 am

      Medicine works wonders! Gotta get those probiotics back into our bodies though.

  • Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets January 30, 2016, 6:44 am

    You learn something new every day.

    Chin penis. I like it!

    P.S. Feel better.

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com January 30, 2016, 5:46 pm

      Thanks, chicky mama!

  • Jayne January 30, 2016, 11:45 am

    Hey! I have never stopped by your blog before but you are hilarious, after reading your comment on my friend Megan’s blog clean eats fast feels, I had to check our your blog. So fun! Love the photos and the story of how it all spread…hilarious!

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com January 30, 2016, 5:46 pm

      Hi Jayne! So happy to meet you! Meghan is pretty neat, hey? She’s tough to compete with in the hilarious department, which is why I don’t even try. Her pregnancy post today absolutely KILLED me.

  • Erin@BeetsPerMinute February 1, 2016, 6:07 am

    Ugh STREP SUCKS. I’ve had it a zillion times too. So much sympathy for you all. I’m dying over the “chin penis” photo comment. Your blog has hit a new high! Haha!

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com February 1, 2016, 9:22 am

      I just can’t believe how phallic the chin shot is!
