Old Notebook Entries…

These scribbles are from 2006/ 2007 I think… I may even have blogged them before but when I found an old notebook that used to live in my handbag I was surprised by some of the scribbles I found in it. I think I’m going to be posting snippets from the book for a while.


What is the etiquette when blowing your nose?

I battle with hay fever, so I sneeze a lot, and I often blow my nose… but it never occurred to me to excuse myself when doing so in public!? Never once did I think to walk away and blow my nose as far out of earshot as possible! I mean, I don’t hock loogies or do these great honking snorts to clear my sinuses, but I usually blow my nose wherever I am and have done with it.

    LOL…I actually do move away from people when I blow my nose. Not that I ever thought about it or anything. Just felt more comfortable for me.

  2. When ever i cant help it and already wanna blow my nose, i feel ashamed but what can i do. If i do blow my nose loud, there’s always my excuse. “I’m sick”

    I really appreciate this article you have shared, we all know that many people don’t care if you sneeze in public, but make sure you have your handkerchief.

    I never thought about this before! Too funny. With a houseful of boys myself, they like to be loud & obnoxious with all of their body functions. Their goal is to see who can shock mom. Dad encourages it…even though he tries to act like he doesn’t 😉

    I don’t blow quietly…at all! So for me, I’m happy to wipe my nose wherever, but I try to keep blowing for when I’m alone.

    I will sometime have to tell you about nose-blowing etiquette whilst cycling.

    Personally, I don’t mind if someone sniffs or blows their nose in my presence. I do mind if someone does that snort-drag-sinus-back-into-head thing in my presence.

    I cant help but just making the loudest noise possible when I blow my noise, I know its childish but I really dont care!

    I usually excuse myself when I know I should blow my nose. Especially if it is not possible to walk out of ear range.

  10. I have never even thought about it… I suppose it would depend on how noisy the blow would be… If it were to be quiet and maybe just a wipe, then I’m sure you could just turn your head.
