Season of the Snot-Faucet
Right now, those sufferers are Grumpy and I, as well as PigPen. Of course, us adults are more like pressurized tanks of snot, while Piggy is definitely a snot FAUCET.
Can I just tell you how many absolutely horrifying images there are on the internet when you Google 'snot faucet', or pretty much anything to do with snot? I threw up in my mouth a little bit.
I'll spare you the sharing, but I will share an absolutely INGENIOUS invention I ran across
Grumps has been using the neti pot, at the direction of his physician. Now, I can't quite bring myself to purposely shove liquid up my nose without panicking or otherwise losing my schmidt. Because ITS NOT NATURAL. It's like jumping in the pool without plugging your nose, then coming up for air with a 'WOW my sinuses feel great!'. Not. Gonna. Happen.
Of course, we could always go the way of the PigPen and simply slime our shirts, moms pants (in the crotch area of course!), or just, well, slurp the snot.
