For the past few weeks, I have been waking up every morning with a bloody nose. Its the strangest thing. I’ve never had one before in my life, and suddenly I have one every day! I thought at first it was part of getting over my Christmas cold. Maybe my nose had been traumatized and was revolting. But its been weeks now and its still going on. Now, I think its because of the weather. Connecticut has been FREEZING lately! See? Here is today’s forecast:
So, I’m thinking since its so freaking cold and the air is so freaking dry that my nose is shriveling up and dying.
Yesterday I got this brilliant idea to put a humidifyer in our bedroom. I thought maybe adding a little hot steam to the room at night my help keep my nose from falling off my face.
Chris was completely against it.
He said it would make us sick. It wouldn’t help my nose. It was a bad idea. I told him to hush up and take me to Target! So, we get to Target and pick out a great humidifyer. Actually, it was almost a great humidifyer. The great humidifyer was the one shaped like a frog, but Chris drew the line and so we just got a plain Jane Vick’s humidifyer. And when we got home, Chris put it together for me, tucked me in, and I fell asleep dreaming of nose bleed-free mornings.
This morning when we woke up, my nose was great! It wasn’t bleeding. It wasn’t even stuffy. But I did notice my throat was a little scratchy. Chris and I turned to eachother at the exact same time.
“I have a cold!” we shouted.
What the crap, humidifyer? I thought you were suppose to make my nose supple and lush? Why’d you have to make us sick, too? Now, I have to box you up and take you back to Target and when they ask me why I am returning the product, I’m going to have to tell them its because you’re a jerk.
Way to go, humidifyer.
