My previous post just reminded me of something that happened many years ago.
I lived with 2 other girls in a big apartment in Duluth. I had very short, dark hair, by BF Waffle had long, jet black hair, and our third roomie, Granola, had really long, light brown-red hair.
One morning I plodded into the bathroom, sneezing and sniffling from what I thought was allergies. I blew and blew my nose, but that "tickle" was still there. And my throat itched too.
I glanced in the mirror and saw something sticking out of my left nostril.
It was a 1/2" hair.
Holy crap! Are my nosehairs out of control or what?, I thought.
I tugged at the offender, but it wasn't attached.
I pulled and pulled, and more just kept coming out- kind of like the "scarf in the sleeve" trick scary half-assed magicians do.
All in all, I pulled about 18" of hair (singular) out.
I had somehow inhaled, and swallowed WITHOUT NOTICING, one of Granola's hairs at some point.
I stopped sneezing, though, and my throat felt better.
But I felt a little pukey, so I went back to bed.

P.S. If you have a minute read this- make sure you don't miss the accompaning mug shot. God I love my weird, weird city.
Oh yeah.... and don't try and compost the hair clippings.....
Nothing worse than picking out 6 month old hair clumps from the pile before adding it to the garden!!!
Looked like a CSI episode in our backyard.
Eeeew. This was WAY grosser than the hairy drain monster story.
Ew. That was definitely worse than the drain story. As far as the drain is concerned...Eh, I've seen bigger hairballs. But someone else's hair in my nose? Ew.
I just sort of unconsciously coughed after reading this, thinking about hairs down my throat and in my nose and such. It's still a great story, though.
(By far the scariest part of "The Ring" for me: the part where Naomi Watts pulls that weird monitoring device out of her mouth. I was literally writhing in my seat.)
Ewww. Ewwww. Ewwww.
About the robber, it appears perhaps he was trying to get money for his "wonky eye" syndrome. I heard it is running rampant in that part of the states :)
Eeew is right but I will say this and with great respect (as in - barkeep, bring my friend WM whatever she wishes please!)...
You say what no one else will. That's a pretty great quality. Gross, but great.
Captain ToeLicker's mug shot is priceless. Could he look MORE crazy?
I don't believe you. I think you should re-enact the whole thing and take pictures...or better yet, post it on you tube.
I want to dress up as the foot sucker for Halloween!
Wow. That is quite the gag-making story!
Reminds me (only a little) of a friend who insists she always gets one long hair stuck down the middle of her cleavage. Like it's a usual thing. (She's the only one I know...)
I guess giving you a hair shirt for Christmas would not be an option then.
And I'm glad Coolio found something to keep him occupied now that his career is in the toilet.
really gross, whiskey.
Interesting story. Both of them! The mugshot has made my day.
I get the Mrs. hair caught in awkward places too. Awkward enough that I won't tell you about it.
That might be the best mug shot ever. But the story wasn't very clear.. did you end up letting him lick your toes?
Omigosh! I'm not sure which made me laugh more. Ok I have to say it's that mugshot!
Thankfully I've never inhaled any hair before-especially since mine is long. But it's definitely less gross to have that happen to than to have a toe-sucking burglar! So don't don't feel bad.
Oh my SWEET LORD.
Gross: My little brother used to hold one end of a spaghetti strand and swallow the other end...then he'd slowly pull it out of his gullet.
Grosser: A very long-haired dancer friend of mine liked to tell a story where she pulled a sturdy, long strand out of her butt one morning.
Grossest: Your hair snorting story. I actually gagged while you were describing the strand's ascent.
That's a David Blaine number right there.
The only thing better would have been if you'd grabbed the other end and pulled it through your sinuses out your mouth.
I heard that story - but the mug shot brings and entirely new HILARIOUSLY FUNNY aspect to the story.
(TMI: I had the same kind of experience only it involved a bodily opening a little further south and my own hair. How it got wrapped around my N.Ring is beyond me. But it made me feel icky.)
