There are two kinds of people in this world:

Those who, upon blowing their nose, look at the tissue after doing it, and those who think that that is fucking stupid.

My wife is of the former group. Time and time again I've watched her blow her nose, then surreptitiously examine the snot rag, just to see if the expelled mucous is actually there, I suppose. Often accompanying this is a queasy feeling on my part and that little voice in my head, I like to call him Mr. Rant, that yells "OH MY GOD THAT'S SICK! WHY DO PEOPLE DO THAT?! WHY, I ASK YOU?!"

But I don't mean to pick on my spouse. Just as I was starting to write this node I saw my coworker do it. I swear I was already resolved to noding this when I saw it happen. I'm beginning to think I am in a minority, with the number of times and with the amount of people I see this happen.

Let me tell you this: once I blow my nose, I have absolutely zero interest in ever looking at that snot again. I don't need to see it to know that I have successfully blown it out. All I have to do is breathe.

Thank you.
