What stupid things have you done lately?

Let's see if anyone can top me.

I've been under some stress.

All of a sudden today I realize I'm getting sick. Scratchy throat. Congestion. Coughing. Not a good time to be sick.

Don't have Zicam at work.

But I do have zinc capsules! So I take one.

Still feel sick.

Genius idea: why not stick a zinc capsule up my nose and let it dissolve there? Same as zicam nose gel, yuh-huh!

Only not so much, because the capsule immediately shot up into my sinuses and was well on its way to my brain. Desperate dash to the (unfortunately PUBLIC) restroom. Frantic attempts to do a sinus rinse without a neti cup. Consternation spreads among all ladies present, which turns into disgust when I start snorting and hacking up water and snot.

Finally half of the capsule came out and now I REALLY feel sick and my ear hurts too.

I can't believe you stuck it up your nose! Poor you. (oh and sorry I laughed out loud when I first read this but DAMN girl you stuck it up your nose!) Hope you feel better soon. (Don't stick more stuff up your nose, OK, let a professional do that, LOL.)
< member since 2006. No idea where 1969 came from.
LOL. Sorry for laughing, but that's pretty funny.

That reminds me of the time I had a bad cold, but no Vick's vapo-rub, so I tried Icy-Hot on my nose (it's menthol, right?). Um, no. That hurt.

I haven't done anything stupid lately, but it's still early in the day.

OK, you win--I sure can't top sticking a zinc capsule up my nose!!

But, I hope you're feeling better soon!

The thing about doing something stupid is it happens so quickly...and yet there's such an abundance of time for regret.

Come on! Surely there's someone who's stuck something somewhere that they now wish they hadn't! Boarderhopper? Or even Zman?

Does it count that when I was younger I thought it would be a good idea to stick the caps of my ecezma cream up my nose and then I couldn't get them out and my mom tried with a pair of twezzers but she finally had to take me to the hospital...

politics is like me and my buddy going hippo hunting. we shoot a hippo and it falls on us. now, instead of using our joint effort of pushing the hippo off of us, we arue for 5 1/2 years on who's idea it was in the first place to go hippo hunting.
Well, there was that time I got a Nerd stuck in my nasal/sinus cavity... I'm sure some will remember that thread.

I happened to clear my throat as I was eating some Nerds and one just shot right up there! I tried forever to get it out, but I'm pretty sure it just melted. Or maybe it's still up there......
Not all who wander are lost.

Fine and thin 3a. PW: curls

Accidentally took two ambian. I woke up standing naked in my kitchen eating cat food at 2 in the morning. I thought they were wasabi peas.


I read the entire pamplet that came with the Ambian bottle and that was NOT listed as a side effect.

Anyhow, I think I'd rather have a nerd in my nose!

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
