1. I have a big nose. It is almost constantly stuffed with a ludicrous amount of snot. I have been told I snore louder than a dozen trains at once (by my new roommate). This obstruction of air flow in my clogged nostrils leads to trouble with breathing which leads to trouble sleeping, hence my lightheadedness and dizzyness earlier this week. All because of my nose. Go figure. However, this also leads to…
2. Near-imperviousness to spicy food. I have never really been a fan of spicy food. I just haven’t. Whenever anything came with peppers or jalapenos, I would ask for it to be taken off, I would only pick mild salsas, and that was that. Well.. in an attempt to clear out my sinuses, my roommate fixed up this ultra-spicy spiked salsa. He did not warn me about this. I really like chips and salsa, probably too much, but again I usually go for mild salsa.
I barely notice anything different. He just stared at me. He eats a couple chip-fuls, and he’s basically in tears. And this guy loves spicy food. He loaded up this salsa with jalapenos, cilantro, tabasco and some “el Diablo” sauce, and it didn’t affect me. There was just a slight spice on the aftertaste, but that was it.
I have a super-power. Now I just need to figure out how to use this to defeat evil and all that.
3. I love Thin Mints. Ok, who doesn’t?? But it is Girl Scout Cookie season (now made with 10% more real girl scouts!) and my coworker has about 2 hundred boxes at her desk. Yeah. So much for eating healthy this year.
Gratz to Shadow Rising on Omnitron and Magmaw!
