This evening Julia walked around with a hunk of tissues in her hand gently dabbing at her nose. It looked as if she was doing a Truman Copote impression except for a hissing noise she'd make with her mouth trying to duplicate a proper nose blowing.
She finally settled down next to me to watch TV. As we watched, Julia would reach over and pat me on the head. It was sweet. After the fourth pat I reached up to touch her hand and return the pat.
That's when I noticed she was still holding the hunk of tissues.
That's when I noticed the huge globs of snot in my hair.
Apparently those hissing noises weren't coming from her mouth.
Looks like we can throw out the nasal aspirator.
