Boogers and Blood

On the way home from work yesterday, I had a bit of a problem... Sorry if this grosses you out. If you have children or have gone through the process of childbirth, I don't think anything can gross you out... Anyway, back to my problem.
I had a booger stuck in the inside part of my nose ring. It was crusty and kind of irritated, so I was trying to get it out. It was really stuck on there-so much so that it didn't come off-even when I pulled the nose ring THROUGH the hole in my nose.
I was only about a minute from home, so I continued to drive. When I got home, there was blood on the outside of my nose, which I'm sure freaked Josh out a bit. I got inside and told Josh that I thought I had pulled my nose ring through the hole but that I didn't know if I should keep pulling or try pushing it back out. He got out the tweasers and pulled-it came right through.
I rushed to the tattoo shop to find out what to do to reconcile the situation. I called on my way there, and the man said that he didn't know if he'd be able to get it back in or not since it usually closes up within 10 minutes. TEN MINUTES! He said that he was in the middle of a tattoo and couldn't do it for awhile, so I'd have better luck if I just tried it myself.
The rest of the story is uneventful. I hurried home. I got the ring half way in, and Josh reluctantly pulled it in the rest of the way. It didn't even hurt-probably because the hole is so large now!!
Now it is impossible to tell that anything happened. Phew. I saw my $50 "investment" going down the drain, merely a week after I finally got it!

THAT is why I'd personally say no to a nose ring. I have too many boogers.

I think my boogers are now getting used to the intrusive nose ring. They aren't quite as prevalent! Thanks for asking, Sista!
