Wow, that was long

Ten days. I think that may be the longest I've ever gone without posting since I started this rag. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

I can assure you the lack of writing wasn't from a lack of stuff in my head. In fact, I must have written at least 20 posts in that time frame but I was either nowhere near a computer or too busy to sit down and write when those times hit me. Oh well, lost to the universe now.

I do want to express great joy in that my brother Dave has made a renewed promise to blog. Also, dear sweet (and big brained) Kim has also made a bold statement to post more often. Thanks to both of you. I really think we need to encourage each other in our writing, and so there's mine to both of you. (You too, Smith.)

Alright, now for something gross. For the past few weeks, almost every afternoon, I've developed this little snot blob in my left nostril. It's not like a normal booger and even snot, it's more like this little pure white entity that has a life of it's own. I can usually feel it's in there when I get a little tickle in my nostril, but way back in the back of the cavity. If I do a good farmer blow (close one nostril with a finger pressing it shut and then blowing hard out of the other nostril) this little thing comes sailing out. It usually lands somewhere on my dash or steering wheel or windshield. But like I said, it's not like snot or a booger, so it isn't sticky or anything. I can pick it up and hold it on my finger like watery silly putty. After which I usually laugh, and then flick it out the window. I know it's weird but I've grown to enjoy the daily ritual.

Alright, enough randomness for one day. Love you all!

I wish I could take credit for that term, but that one's been around for a long time.

As for the computer screen, I've never tried it there but I bet it would be a good target. Hee-Hee

Possible solution for your problem... Are you into Holistic Medicine? Try a Neti Pot - it will help to clean out your sinus passages. You can find them in most drug stores. PLUS they are really cool to use - you basically pour water into one nostril and it comes out the other!

Sam!! What a wonderful image of what we call a "Snot Rocket" I'm glad to see you're getting back into the blog realm as well. (thanks for the plug!)

If you go the "Neti Pot" rout please record it and post it. It sounds like it would work but it also sounds hilarious!

I'm blessed by our friendship.

gross, Sam. Farmer snots (as I normally term them) definitely should not be done inside a vehicle. I love it when I catch people picking there nose while driving. If I saw someone farmer snot, that might get me into a wreck. just sayin.

That is disguisting and downright unnecessary. I don't think that I will be driving the car anymore.
