too much typing—since 2003


been busy... this is a brief and pointless post, concerning words or wordlike things that ought to describe obscure and outdated maladies:

The maws.

Brewer's tingle.


The withering brithets.


You may provide a description of the symptoms of any of these, if you care to do so. You may also try calling in sick to work, claiming affliction from these.

Well, everyone knows that the Maws are when you can't stop scratching your eyebrows.

If I'm not mistaken, brewer's tingle is the numbness you experience in your fingers after having the ridges of an especially stuck twist-off bottle crown dig into your mitts.
