a public service announcement

i have not been feeling well lately.

it all started when i went to game 2 of the world series on sunday, and woke up on monday with what might have been The Worst Hangover Of All Time. and, people? for me, that is saying A LOT.

anyhow, as i went to sleep on monday night, i comforted myself with the thought that i would feel like a normal person on tuesday.

i was wrong.

on tuesday i had a sinus infection.

may you all be warned, the world series may try to kill you.

anyhow.

you know how the worst part about having fucked up sinuses is when you blow your nose and blow your nose AND BLOW YOUR NOSE and no matter what you do, you still can't breathe?

well, i have found the solution.
and it is called Afrin 12 hour nasal spray.*

for the record, i am sorry to talk to you about something as gross as nasal spray.
but, seriously?
this stuff is amazing.

i mean, have you ever had one of those nights when you were sick and you kept flipping from one side to the other so that you could switch which side of your face was all stuffed up?

no?

am i the only one?

anyway, this stuff will cure you of that.
and while you still will not feel well AT ALL, you will be able to breathe out of your nose and go about your public business as if you are not a mouth-breathing neandrethal.
so, you know.
that's probably a good thing.

*for the record, i think lamamala told me about this at least 10 years ago, and i was all ' no way am i squirting something up my nose.'
anyway--no big surprise--as usual my mother was right and i should have allowed the squirting to commence YEARS AGO!!!!

p.s.
i sincerely apologize for writing such a passionate post about nose spray. but you guys have no idea how excited i am to be breathing right now.

because, breathing = good.

So, see any magic nasal spays that block out the noise of roommates washing dishes at 4am? How about one that when used makes the same roommate wash their hands when they use the bathroom? Hope you get better soon so you can have some fun.

Hey! Thanks for putting me on your site! It's nice to be called "some guy named Bob", rather than "the Bob"! I appreciate the plug! I'll do the same with your site.

You know, I used to be VERY VERY addicted to that stuff. So much so that I really couldnt breathe through my nose without it. Since I have lost weight I dont get sick as much, so I dont use it that often, but even still, it doesnt work as effectively now when I do need it. Shitty. Just a heads up. Get feeling better, yo.

Omg, I have had those constantly-flipping-over nights before too. I know exactly what you mean. Hope you are feeling better already.
