Nose Job


Yesterday was a quiet day here in Trelawnyd. Animal helper Pat called round with gifts of beans and ripe tomatos and it was first day at school for the junior school children who gridlocked the lane just before 9 am in their parents' 4 x 4s .
In the afternoon I emptied  the defrosted chest freezer which was an odorous job then I did some food shopping, bought petrol and went to B&Q to buy a replacement carbon monoxide monitor. It was only on the way home when I caught a glimpse of my face in the rear view mirror did I realise that I was still wearing one of those nose cleaning strips I had put on hours earlier!

  7. I use a handkerchief to clean out my nose. I can't see how those fancy strips would expel snot effectively.

  13. Dirt, oil or blackheads, or just to tighten up those pores?

    Never heard of 'em before now.

  14. Goodness, are deep cleansing nose strips the latest must-have fashion accessory? And is your nose really that filthy? :-)

    1. Come on, Nick, be fair. John's nose is not filthy. As a male he is blessed with thick skin which produces sebum (oil). The moment sebum meets air (oxygen) it turns black. I know this because my beloved grandfather had those black thingies on his nose. So, what you do, and don't turn your nose up at it, is extract the sebum. Good on John. There is love, and then there is aethetics. Of course, he could have just squeezed, but then he is a nurse and knows the way of least resistance, to come away without a scar.

    Laughing right out loud . . .
    (Like the time I took off to my grandsons track meet with a roller in my hair! Walked into the meet with a nice young man . . . (who never said a word about "my roller look.") Looked for my grandson, he came running and shouted "granny, you have a roller in your hair!")
    Keeping it real . . .

  21. Don't you have mirrors about the house so that you can check your hairstyle before leaving the house?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am pretty sure that is not an approved look in the retiree handbook.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thank you, John! Some days we just need a laugh...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Everyone probably thought you'd had an accident and bashed your nose.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Don't you check yourself in your rear view mirror before you drive off?

  32. John I feel your pain. I can top that. Today at work as a practice nurse I feel over flex in my room and the noise was phenomenal as the fan and me crashed to the floor catching my rib cage on corner of desk. I was fussed over by 2 GPs who were worried at my dazed state and high blood pressure so was sent home. To top that wearing dress and old knickers pulled out of drawer at dawn earlier in day. So embarrassed as Gp wanted to check I was ok. So on list is new knickers. Keep your nose clean.

  33. Most people would think it was a bandage, if that helps :)

    You do make me feel better about my faux pas, though!

  34. Reminds me of the time our very prim and proper assistant principal came in the school fuming. She was running late and got behind a taxi going through the VERY long playground zone around our school at a very slow speed when the zone wasn't in effect for another 15 minutes, making her even later. He pulled into the school parking lot and she proceeded to give him an ear full about making her late for a very important meeting,not true, blah, blah, blah. We're all standing there, smirking, and someone suggested she go in the washroom before she continued with her day. She still had 2 big pink foam rollers in her bangs that she'd forgotten to take out. Kind of took the wind out of her sales. I bet the taxi driver had a good laugh after she stomped off!!

  36. I'm sure it looked very fetching John.

  37. oh i did chuckle ! When I was younger living in the uk - petticoats/slips were either starched or had hoops in them at intervals to make skirts really stick out (this was in the 50's) well I tried starching but went to hoops -unfortunately coming down the double decker bus steps a hoop decided to come out. I tried to look nonchalant but at 15 it was very embarrassing trying to casually gather up a hoop from my slip.

  38. Oh, dear god! I promise to always double-check myself in the mirror before I leave the house. You might want to do the same.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Don't worry, given your penchant for minor accidents they probably thought it was a nose splint. :-)
