Insults, injuries, and indignities inherent in the human form

I find myself posting what a dear friend of mine once referred to as a "my-finger-hurts" post. She was of the opinion that such fare was supremely uninteresting but there you go. We just have to write about the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune that ail or vex us occasionally.

I have found that for the past day or so, the interior geometry of my right nostril has somehow configured itself such that when I inhale through my nose it whistles...like a steam whistle or a calliope. Fortunately, it isn't loud enough to be heard beyond my immediate proximity but I dread thinking that had I a bed partner currently, she would likely be tempted to change rooms or possibly dump me altogether on account of the absurdity of it all. Honestly, it's very undignified. I'm tempted to punch myself in the nose to cause my nasal geometry to assume a less melodious configuration. Fortunately, the condition doesn't persist very long when it strikes. I'm hoping that a good night's sleep will remedy the deformity.

See... I don't get the first paragraph. If your finger hurts, why the hell are you typing up an LJ post to begin with?! Stop hurting your finger more!

Anyway, as to the nostril, that happens to me a fair amount, but I find that anything that will change the mucus layout (hot shower, vigorous nose-blowing, mashing the nose around, or some combination there-of) will make it go away.

You're funny.

Don't punch yourself in the nose. Just feel better.

You mean, I can have a Brad Pitt/Tyler Durden alter-ego?

Oh, I am so there! My alter-ego gets lots of fun and action! Gee, where did I put my rubber gloves? Whee! I already even know how to make dynamite and stuff like that...all I need to do is just give myself a good socking-to, eh? Heh!
