I believe I’ve stumbled into the perfect storm.
Riding my bike to work, nixing my allergy medicine, and living where pollen counts have been “off the charts” this year has created immune system havoc.
So, as I poured saline solution into my nostrils while bent over the kitchen sink last night with Dancing with the Stars droning on in the background, I had two thoughts:
1) This better friggin work!
2) Will someone please tell Kate Gosselin to go home and take care of her kids? I can dance better than her and that means she’s REALLY bad!
Anyway, I was frightened of using my new Neti Pot for the first time, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I’ll admit it felt weird at first; it felt like being dunked under water.
I was an unattractive slobbery sight to behold at the end.
Just ask my plant George about it if you’re curious.
Though it was an ugly site, I could breathe through my nose for the first time in four days last night and I used it again with greater success this morning.
Sweet, sweet drug-free allergy relief.
