Noses clean !
|One of the main advantages of being
online is that most of us sit behind their screen alone. I know, last week
i wished for surfing to become a social activity again, but there are two
signs to a coin. Look at how you're now....this moment you read these words.
You are probably alone and if you are a blush is colouring your cheeks
(looks good on you, by the way). And be honest to yourself, now... aren't
you picking your nose while reading this? Come on....... Even if you aren't
right now, aren't you suddenly feeling an almost irresistible urge to do
it? Yeah, i thought so. It happens to all of us. If drivers in a traffic
jam feel private enough to do it behind the wheel of their immobilized
vehicle, why shouldn't you in the privacy of your office, your room or
garden shed? Be my guest, go ahead..... i hope you feel better while and
after you did it. We will not go into detail on the discoveries you might
do there, but i want you, dear reader, to stand still for a second (that's
all one can ask from you, net addicts !) why we all enjoy picking our noses.
Yeah, i know, some of you quit smoking and don't
know what to do with their hands. But try to remember when you were smoking
6 packs a day. Right what i thought, you were picking too. What is it that
makes us pick our noses ? Were we made to? Is there no other way to spend
our fingers free time? You know none of these questions touches the real
issue. There are three reasons why we do it. The first one is of a hygienic
kind. Indeed, picking your nose helps in keeping it clean. It's easier
to wash your hands and dry them in stead of rinceing your nose and stuff
it with the towel.
Well let's face it : it usually doesn't hurt, it's defendable from a hygienic and a genetic point of view and everybody needs to have at least a little island of power over his or her environment. You could try to think about changing your habits, but don't bother trying to change yourself.....Eventually you will have a relapse and it will be worse than before. All i can say to conclude this is, don't worry about it, you might as well enjoy it as long as you can. No one will pick your nose for you. See you next week.
