My snotty nose, in detail (don't bother reading this) (and if you do, don't say I didn't warn you)
I remember I wrote something a few months ago (I don't even think it was an entire post, just an aside) about how I was really snotty, and several people told me I was really gross and that I overshare, so I'm just warning you right now that if you were one of those people then you should stop reading NOW, and when I say "now" I really do mean "now." And I'm sorry to be writing a post about snot, but it's all I can think about right now because, okay, the thing is: I have a crummy cold and I've been sitting here blowing my nose for the past, um, several hours, and I'm just...I'm kind of amazed at the body's capacity for snot production. Honestly. Because it really seems quite endless right now. All of the snot. I don't even want to tell you how many boxes of kleenex I've been through because it's embarrassing. And I've taken lots of cold medication and none of it is doing anything to stop the production of all of this snot. The stuff just keeps pouring out of my nose. Okay, if you're still reading this and kinda grossed out, but not totally grossed out, but you think that you've heard enough, then you should really stop reading now, because I'm going to say one more thing, which is: I was standing in the kitchen earlier and snot started oozing out of my nose so quickly that before I could do anything about it, there was literally a puddle on the ground. It was really disgusting. I'm so sorry that I've blogged this, this is way gross. But I warned you.
