all the colors of the rainbow

this past week’s sinus infection has shown me that my snot can be all the colors of the rainbow.  And while this has been an enlightening discovery, I grow weary of the frequent nosebleeds and sounding all stuffy all the time.  And the clogged ears.

So I’ve been using a Neti Pot.  Which brings me to my next point.

You’re not the boss of me.  I know these two ideas don’t seem to be connected.  But those who know me grow weary of my frequent refrain. You’re not the boss of me.  I say it so often, sometimes I just look at objects and THINK IT.  Which has become my attitude toward the Neti Pot.

You're not the boss of me, mother fucker.

I hate it.  I hate the feeling of salt water in my sinus cavity. Ironic right?  I hate when it drips out all snotty and gross. I hate that it gets in my hair, no matter what I do. I hate that, as my brother in law so eloquently put it, it randomly makes “chicken noodle soup” come out of my nose.  I hate that i’m not supposed to be Scuba diving. I hate that I do it anyway and then my nose bleeds in my mask and then my face hurts.  I hate that I walk into the bathroom and I see that Neti Pot and I think to myself, You’re not the boss of me, and then I have to use it, and it IS the boss of me. Me and my busted up sinus cavity.
