The Nose Tampon

Good news is that I'm finally getting over the bronchitis. Still wheezing and coughing, but not so violently. I also have a new doctor whom I really like; my last one was a jerk and a waste of my time. I still have a runny nose and I'm annoyed by my dependence upon the tissue box. Thus, I have come up with an invention:

The Nose Tampon!

They don't call me brilliant for nothing. Not that anyone does. But if they did....

Think of it, you can buy a package of say, 40 Nose Tampons, each individually wrapped in paper or plastic. I haven't decided about the applicator part. Anyway, so you'd insert the tampon in the nostril, using two unless you've got unilateral drippage. The tampon swells to fit the shape of the chamber and absorbs mucus. You can get the regular, super absorbant, or slim (for Michael Jackson sized nostrils). Unlike conventional tampons, there will not be deoderant options. But, one can select different colors so the dangling strings will match your outfit.

I thought about emailing my idea to Kleenex, but David tells me I should wait until the ambien wears off.

Is that what that string was hanging out of your nose last week? I was afraid to ask. Now I'm glad I didn't!

You want one, don't you. Don't be ashamed to admit it.

I have major allergies. I'd buy them... It would keep my nose from getting so raw from wiping it all day. I've tried cotton balls but they only last about 1 minute before they're soaked.
