Appendix in A Bottle, Day 23 Creatures

When I was 16 I had my appendix removed. My doctor asked if I wanted it in a bottle, I don't think he expected me to say, "Sure."

He was a bit of an odd duck and would be sued nowadays but being told by him that I had nice knockers only generated an eye roll from his nurse. He probably found bottled body bits humorous.

Thanks to Google I found an image of an appendix and did this version of it. I'm fairly certain mine didn't have a tail, talons, or wings but that might have explained why I was so sick.

I drew it with a Micron Pigma Pen, painted it with watercolors and put it an a bottle courtesy the Graphics Fairy.
