My Nose Knows


AFriendlyFace

So I was in the shower the other day when all of a sudden my nose started bleeding. Which really isn't a big deal. Ever since I was a young child I've had nosebleeds when sick. So I mean it doesn't really phase me at all. I hate it because it's messy and gross, but it doesn't upset me at all. Anyway it's been better the last few years and as I said I almost never get them unless I'm sick. And when I do it usually does happen randomly in the shower. I guess it's the heat and humidity, I don't know. Of course I guess that's a good place to make a mess anyway. So, getting back to the point, I was suprised it happend because I was thinking, "how odd! I'm not even sick"....then the next day I started feeling stuffy, and it's just gotten worse since :( . I guess my nose saw it coming (which is a very odd image). Still I think I'm doing well all things considered. I was even still pretty energetic today. Last night I went and got some Tylenol Cold, and it seems to be helping. While I was there I debated getting this new OTC med. which is supposed to be a really great expectorant -- which of course reminded me of a joke. I read it in Reader's Digest's My Planet column (I love that column!), anyway it went like this (roughly):

 

"When you walk down the cold medicene isle it's easy to be overwhelmed by all the options. They have "cold relief" medicene for people with stuffy noses, and then a little further down they have "nasal decongestants" for stuffy people with stuffy noses."

 

....it was much funnier the way that she (Mary Roach) had phrased it.

 

Anyway I got this awesome brownie sundae on the way home! I've decided to give up chocolate for lent! (wish me luck) So I figured I'd splurge a little before it's too late ;) . It was SOOO good. And my favorite girl was working. She's really nice and she makes them so well, always just the way I like it! And she's really friendly we always have a nice chat when I go in. She's friends with that gorgeous red-headed guy that I kinda thought was gay but wasn't sure, so I didn't flirt with him, then later I saw him with a boyfriend. Anyway she's great. The other person who usually works there is this older lady, who isn't as great (though I think she may actually be the owner). Anyway she's like never in a good mood. And I try to chat with her and she talks but she just makes me feel like an idiot for even trying. Plus she doesn't make the sundae's as well! She doesn't put enough toppings, she seldom bothers to warm up the brownies, and she puts the ice cream in an order I don't like as much. And I know it sounds like I'm being silly about it, but I often go with Coressa (a friend from work), or she'll go on her own, and she agrees with me! In fact she doesn't even go in sometimes if it's that lady working.

 

One time when I went there was this adorable blonde boy working. He was so hot! And very friendly, and just really cute and cool. He was literally like running back and forth across the store -- and there wasn't a crowd so it's not like he was hurrying, he was just lively-- anyway I like exuberant people. I was having this awesome time flirting with him, and I really think he was flirting back too. Anyway that day I'd ordered a blueberry snowcone, but when he gave it to me it was PURPLE, which I thought was odd, but I was so distracted by HIM that I didn't really consciously process it. Anyway I went home and as I was taking like the last bite of it, it finally hit me: "This is grape!". And I know he knew what I ordered, I mean we were talking the whole time he was making it, and at one point I'm pretty sure he said "blueberry right", so after I thought about it somemore I was thinking that I was probably supposed to come back and be like "hey I think you made me the wrong flavour", I mean it woulda been a pretty good way to get me to come back right away so we coulda talked more...plus it was purple; I mean isn't that like some sort of discrete hint or something?? Anyway it didn't work because I'm such a space cadet! Of course it's his fault too for being so cute :P . It sucks though I NEVER saw him in there again....I guess he didn't work there very long.

 

Anyway my mom bought me the extended verison/special collectors edition thingy of Chicago last night. And there's supposed to be a deleted musical number on it! So I'm going to go watch that and have an early night.

 

Take care everyone and have a really awesome night!

Kevin

Sorry about your bloody nose! I used to get bloody noses if I ate too much chocolate (still do, actually). So sad, since I love chocolate :blink:

Chocolate?? Chocolate can cause nosebleeds? Well goodness that could be the problem there!

Does this mean you're going to give up chocolate? 0:)

I guess not, if he kept getting people's orders wrong. :P:D

Kevin, honey, you are an impossible optimist. You even manage to find something positive about a nosebleed! Whatever it is about you that makes you so happy, if you find a way to bottle it then send me a shipment! :D

 

Sorry you're ill mate, but I'm sure you'll find a good side to that too. Take care of yourself and your psychic nose. :P

Hey Kitty :D

 

LOL well I am going to try to give up chocolate for 40 days :P

 

LOL yes I do wonder if perhaps he just kept messing people's orders up....goodness knows I wasn't going to complain though ;) .... reminds me of that first season episode of Friends when Chandler got stuck in the bank vestibule with the model, Jill Goodacre, and he was kicking himself for turning down a piece of gum:

 

"Note to self, if Jill Goodacre offers you gum, you take it!

If Jill Goodacre offers you rotten animal carcass, you take it!" :P:boy:

LOL thanks Rob :D

 

I'll see what I can do about bottling the attitude for you ;) . I think I'm starting to get better, I'm still congested but my throat doesn't hurt today, and I seem to be breathing a little better. The biggest down side is that tomorrow is Mardi Gras (which is a huge celebration in this part of the country), but I'd be a fool to go out in that environment while sick :thumbdown: . I guess it'll be a good chance to get back to studying Spanish though, I've been neglecting it the last week.

 

Anyway have an awesome day and take care!

Kevin

 

(BTW I hope your shoulder's better now :) )
