If you've spent any time in hospitals—and, unless you are employed in the medical profession in some way, I hope that you haven't had to—you've seen the Wong-Baker Faces. The scale is used to help assess a patient's level of discomfort or pain, and it's a marvelous resource.
I was wondering, though, if it might—with a little tweaking—be used to assess the pain of Shakespeare aficionados. Out of this thought arose the scale below: The Shakespeare Edition of the Wong-Baker FACES Pain Rating Scale (click on it to enlarge it). And I do hope that each of you is on the 0 end of the scale (Rosalind, As You Like It, End of the Play) and will stay there for a considerable length of time.
