Seth's dislodged waxy (ewww!) eartube (at right) in comparison to an earring (please note the earring was not in his ear, it is just for scale purposes)
The doctor then looks in Seth's other ear and discovers a treasure! Not a ball of wax, a sprout, or a dinosaur, but a purple bead! He again asks Rob to assist him in holding Seth down so that he is able to extract the purple bead. Again he is successful.
Apparently the bead reached Seth's ear unknowingly (yeah right) but after some inquiry, it was discovered that some crafts were done in his preschool class right before New Years involving beads. What can be learned from this story? Supervision is absolutely necessary when 3 and 4 year olds are playing with beads. Also, one can see from his bead color choice that Seth Bright is truly a ECU Pirate fan! Arggghhhh!!!
