    Footloose and Tonsil-free!

    I was only about seven when I had mine removed.  Before that, I'd had chronic tonsillitis.  I was off school every other week because I was so ill.  Therefore, my doctor made me have mine removed as soon as he could.  I also had the adenoids in my nose removed...
