Me mum thinks she's so funny, sending me this cartoon, changing the name and changing "he" to "she"....then adding "hee hee har har" to the top.
Unfortunately, anyone who has had the "pleasure" of hearing me blow my nose will totally understand, and laugh heartily at, this cartoon. It's so loud that sometimes when my boss gives me a dictation tape to transcribe, I can hear myself in the background of the tape, honking away. And of course because we transcribe on a slower speed, I get to hear myself in a long, drawn out, "WHAAAAAAANK". Now I make it a point to get as far away from him as possible when he's dictating, then blow my nose. People can hear it through the telephone and will ask Steve, or Brian, "what was that?" Or I'll blow my nose and Brian will call out, right on cue, "Barge Comin' Thru!"
S'okay, I never claimed to be dainty or ladylike.
When I was a kid, and even throughout college, I would never blow my nose. I'd sniff. Incessantly. My parents, grandmother, cousins and friends would BEG me to blow my nose and quit sniffing. I wouldn't blow my nose b/c I was grossed out at the thought of all that snot on my upper lip. Finally, I caved into Brian's begging me to please blow my nose. Everyone is very, very sorry that I started now. hahahaha "Be careful what you wish for"!
