Is your cold fun? No, it's snot.

So I have been sick with this totally annoying cold for going on 2 weeks now, and all I can think is this: at what point is my head going to stop manufacturing snot? I mean, for real...is snot just a limitless commodity? Is there an infinite amount available? Because I have been blowing my nose non-stop, and it just keeps on coming. I feel like my whole head is filled to the brim, my ears are clogged, I've got the post-nasal drip...enough already. I have tried every variety of cold medicine and no joy. I broke down and went to the dr. yesterday, and apparently it's just a cold. Something viral, so no help from the antibiotics. I do feel marginally better today. One of my ears finally popped, so I don't feel like a little old lady who goes around saying "eh?" constantly and who has one of those comically giant horn things she holds up to her ear for people to speak into. So, I guess that's a step in the right direction...

Oh also, those tissues with the lotion in them are the greatest invention ever.

I will leave you with these fine photos I took to amuse myself while waiting for the dr. yesterday:

What are your thoughts on neti pots?

I love the neti pot! It's such a bizzare concept (to pour water up your nose seems counterintuitive) but that shit works. I've been using mine quite a bit lately. The only problem is that the effect doesn't last nearly long enough...

My sister swears by hers. Like you, I had a problem pouring water up my nose, but it does seem to work. I hate when you're all stuffed up and all you want to do is be able to unscrew your head and wash it out in the sink.
