Hair removal is a subject us girls talk about quite regularly, but the subject of nasal hair removal comes up rarely. Recently my nasal hair has been a law unto itself. In the past just a quick trim with the scissors has been enough but it seems to be growing quicker than I can trim it. All very annoying. Sometimes the hairs tickle the inside of my nose and it feels like I need to blow it, but alas no amount of blowing will rid me of the irritation and more drastic action is required. In the absence of any cutting implements I resort to pulling the hairs out hoping that I get the right one that is causing the irritation. This brings me to the point where I have found that pulling at these pesky little follicles is akin to Russian roulette. Sometimes I pull and removal is relatively painless but other times it feels like the hair was attached to my retina. A leg flinches and one eye streams with tears. The thought that I may have just pulled my eyeball through my nasal passage, is only dispelled as I slowly open my eyes and a blurred world comes into view. At which point a small expletive is announced. A reflex action of the brain, which is trying to tell the world that I am a candidate for the Darwin award because this isn’t the first time I have attempted this form of self-abuse.
I think I may buy a nose hair trimmer.
