DISCLAIMER: If you’re easily offended by bodily function talk, STOP reading now. Remember I raised three boys, so there aren't too many sounds, functions, etc that I'm uncomfortable talking about. :)
If you’re continuing to read anyway as I know most of you are, just because you’re like that. I apologize in advance for offending you if I do.
I’ve been dealing with a nasty summer cold which is finally on the upswing. You know how it goes at the end of a cold, when you can blow and blow your nose but when you breathe in, you can feel more still up there and somehow, you just can’t quite get rid of it? I know you do, even if you’re too ladylike to admit it.
Anyway today at work, being at the tail end of this cold, I was blowing and blowing my nose because of that exact situation. My boss who is across the hall from me, yells “Good grief, is everything okay over there?”
#1 - yes, we do yell across the hall to each other frequently. I know, real professional, huh? But hey, it works for us.
#2 – he really wasn’t concerned as much as he was giving me a hard time about it.
Our relationship is pretty relaxed like that.
Anyway, I told him that DH tells me to just do a “farmer blow”. But I can’t quite bring myself to do it. For those of you who don’t know what that is…it’s kind of a guy thing when they’re outside…they hold one nostril shut and blow as hard as they can without a tissue or handkerchief. They basically blow it into the air, on the ground, etc. Remember, I warned you this post was gross!
So, my boss shares with me, that he didn’t know what a “farmer blow” was until a couple of years ago. In his defense, he was raised in the Chicago burbs and they called it something else…
a snot rocket! yes, a snot rocket!
Oh my goodness, I practically fell out of my chair laughing. I’d never heard that description!
It does create a much better visual now doesn’t it???
Now, that' I’ve removed any doubt, if there was even a shadow of one remaining before this post, that I’m a hick,
Have a wonderful evening!
