My morning blow

I have "admitted" (like it is a bad thing) that I don't wash my legs in the shower. I mean they don't get dirty - soap and water sort of runs by them - that has to take care of an miniscule amount of funk that they might produce.

Well at lunch we were talking about showers or something and I said - "Hey I blow my nose in the shower." Somehow I expected everyone to chime in and say - well duh of course - who doesn't. That is not what happened. I think Derek and Sarah almost puked.

What's the deal? You build up snot all night then get in the shower. It is moist, steamy and humid in there and everything loosens up. So I just farmer blow it. What do "normal" people do? Get out of the shower - neatly fold a Kleenex and blow their nose? Because I know what you are going to get - a soggy fucking mess. Your hand is wet and the second you touch the Kleenex it is going to disinigrate. I need some feedback here. I mean there is a fucking drain and soap so I can come out of this whole affair pretty clean.

Snot Rockets in the shower are a no-go. I always do the blowing prior to getting in the shower and then again after I've dried off. I never felt this way until I was in the shower with my (then) boyfriend and he Snot Rocketed right on my feet. Now I just can't deal with that.

Scott, I TOTALLY blow my nose in the shower. I know, I know--That's something you would expect a man to do, but not a girlie girl like me. But I totally do it. While we are admitting things, I also pee in the shower.

My hubby just chimed in and said, "Doesn't everybody?" I have totally heard him doing this, so I know he does too.

I have a friend who's shower theory is that you can not do anything dirty in one - it's all clean, always. As soon as it leaves your body (whatever it is) it instantly becomes purified.

I don't subscribe to this philosophy, but I definately blow in the shower.

Seriously, folks! No peeing, blowing or pooping allowed in the shower. That's time to be clean, not empty your body!

I have a question - what is more gross
(1) A very small amount of snot that is whisked away by hot water
(2) 16 lbs. of hair that every girl on earth (maybe not Beck - her hair looks short) clogs the drain with.

Seriosly - where is this hair coming from?

Hair globs in the drain are pretty gross. I'm guilty of that. Stick to the in-shower snot rockets.

Blogger Sarah said...

Since you are so grossed about by the hair globs, maybe you should think about how much of your snot is NOT being washed down the drain due to said hair globs.

Oh God. I'm going to vomit again.

That's grossed OUT, not grossed about.

Are the women in your house going through chemo? Is that why they're losing such great amounts of hair? Scott, your bathroom scares me.

SLC Urban Princess has obviously never had sex in the shower.

The SLCUP has had plenty of shower sex. And yes, it's entirely different from what we're talking about.

Come on people...even my wife blows her nose in the shower. I'm pretty sure she thinks I don't know this little tidbit, but hey...walls in houses these days are thin. LOL

To continue being grossed ABOUT by hair globs and snot, I take care of the snot build-up too, Sarah, just so ya know. Didn't want you to lose any sleep on that or anything.

Blogger Jacq said...

Good lord, now I really want to throw up. That snot build up is much worse than the hair, I have to admit.

Now I'm gonna lose sleep!

I have not blown my nose but have done some serious digging, because as formerly mentioned, it all gets loosened up in the shower, I don't think its gross to blow your nose in the shower, for gods sake, I pee in the shower EVERY DAMN TIME! It all goes down the drane and I am super freaky about cleaning my shower and bathtub CONSTANTLY. I have those wipes that I use all the time and once a week I use bleach and Ajax and scower the crap out of it. Its a place to relax, not worry about needing a tetnus.

I totally blow my nose in the shower too. You're right. Where else can you do it and it just washes away without any effort? I don't know about these other people, but I don't wake up until I'm in the shower. Before that, I can't really tell if there is snot up my nose. Or if I'm alive...or if the place has been nuked...or if I'm breathing.

The sad thing about it, though, is that no matter how much you take care of the hair globs or the snot buildup, it still comes BACK!!!!

MIN PIN, I am also insane about cleaning my shower, too. Nuke it with the Chlorox Cleanup spray, that'll do the trick.

My shower walls are covered with "Kids Crayola Bath-time fun finger paint" Yes - I have an entire "Ducky themed bathroom in the house - but for some reason my kids use my bathroom and every morning I have to punt toys out of the way so I can shower. I'm going to be honest - it probably doesn't meet min pin or jacq's cleanliness standards.

I blow my nose in the shower, yes sir. Anyone who doesn't must not have allergy problems...yet. Just wait. Especially if you have an office job, you will definitely develop allergies. Trust me, you'll be honking that snot in the steamy shower one day. You'll feel such relief that you won't even care who hears you.

I have to assume you don't wipe it off on your legs, cuz now we know you'd still be walking around with "snot-legs".

Ha ha ha Scott. Good one! Hey, you have to clean that stall if you're gonna pee in it, right?

I agree wholeheartedly. Moist air loosens stuff up. No big deal. And, having phlegm is merely a natural bodily function. You shower to clean the outside of your body. Why not showering to clean the inside of your nasal passages too?
