An Actual Conversaton...

I seem to be on the recovery end of my cold. The majority of my energy is back. We'll just see how long it takes to kick this cough.

But in the height of the yuck, this conversation with my dear friend Kikr:

Me: What I don't understand - and I'm sorry if this is gross - is how you can blow your nose every 5 seconds and yet there is always more!

Kikr: Oh. I can explain exactly why. (she is an audiologist and therefore understands the mysterious things that happen between the ears and behind the nose)

Silence.

Me: So you're saying I don't want to know?

Kikr: Uh. Yeah. The answer is way grosser than the question!


I'm guessing it has something to do with that ugly mucus character from the TV commerical.


She thought it best to wait and tell me when I'm healthy - and not plagued with the disgusting reality myself!


What a good friend.

It's so funny that you had that conversation because I had one similar a couple of years ago. Of course, I didn't get the medical answer. It is frustrating though, isn't it!

I've wondered that myself. I think I'd rather not know.

I'd want to know... (maybe that's why I'm still single?)

LOL! I woke up one night and needed to blow my nose repeatedly for about 30mins - seriously!

I want to know too :o
