Nashville is paranoid. Trembling on the edge of the couch, fretfully looking out the window every five minutes paranoid.
Ever since that big ole nasty flood last May, Nashville gets downright skittish around rain.
So, right now, we have some rain going on. It's been raining off and on since this morning. It's mostly in Kentucky, though.
I’m not worried, however. I love the rain, I love the sound, I love the lightening, I love the thunder.
I even love how the power flickers as I type into my laptop, content in the knowledge that the battery is fully charged.
So the rest of Nashville can bite their nails off with worry, cancel all their plans, buy out the stores, and issue a million unnecessary flood warnings and tornado watches.
I’m going to be paranoid about other things.
Like facial hair.
Not in general. Just one disturbing tale my sister told me the other day.
Now, I have only three hairs I worry about:
One on my chinny-chin-chin.
One on my cheek, oddly enough.
And one persistent little nose hair that likes to stick out further than my nose knows how to handle.
The other day, my sister walked into the bathroom, discovering me at my beauty work. I tweezed out that horrible little nose hair, and Hannah cringed.
“Please promise me you’ll never do that again,” she said.
“Uh… why?” I asked.
Hannah proceeded to tell me a horrifying story where tweezing nose hairs can lead to follicle infections that can SPREAD TO YOUR BRAIN.
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Why has this not been talked about before??
I did some googling (or in my case nowadays, Swagbucking), and sure enough, there are a couple forums and websites that say, Yes, tweezing nose hairs can lead to infection!
“Tweezing your ear hair is a good alternative but don't tweeze your nose hair. There is a high occurence of infection associated with plucking nose hairs. There is a lot of bacteria in your nasal passage.”
“Do not tweeze nose hairs, as this can cause infection.”
Ok, so maybe neither are the most reliable sources, but still! I’ve found more than a few places saying that this is not a good thing.
I think I may still continue tweezing. …I don’t know.
Worth the risk?
