My Poor Nose
I have a small bump on the bridge of my nose. It's basically a mole, raised, but skin-colored not brown. It's usually not very noticeable.

This morning, I was putting away the pants I'd worn yesterday. I grabbed them by the leg, and lifted them quickly up. I forgot that there was a belt still in them. The buckle swung up and smacked me on the nose, right between my eyes. Ouch! You know how, when you do stupid things like that, the first thing you do is hurry to the mirror to check if you've left a mark? (Well, I do at least.) But generally there never is, and I was running late, so I just winced and ignored it.

This evening I glanced at myself in the mirror, and I found that the mole on my nose is much more obvious than usual! It is now outlined in red. I have injured my nose-mole. I am such a freak.

This exciting story has been brought to you by the It's-5am-and-I-can't-sleep Network. Also sponsored in part by the I-can't-believe-I-hit-my-nose-with-my-belt-buckle Organization. We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

Read this a 5:05AM, so it really was for the It's-5am-and-I-can't-sleep Network. Last night, I was on the It's-12am-and-I-can't-sleep Network.

You mean we don't get photos, a poll on whether or not you should go the doctor and a what kind of mole am I quiz?

belt buckles are devious...

One day I was getting dressed in a hurry, and so I got my jeans on, and then I threaded my belt through the first loop really quickly -- so quickly that my belt buckle zipped upwards and whacked myself squarely on my precious, precious balls.

This has happened exactly one time in my lifetime. I think about it almost every time I put on my belt now. Pain is definitely the ultimate educator. :)

Re: belt buckles are devious...

Wow...ouch! That sounds much worse than my incident, which really just resulted in some smarting and a red mark on my nose.

Negetive reinforcement is a powerful tool, yes. If you still think about it almost every time, that must have been quite a thwacking you took.... Glad at least you learned your lesson! I'm not sure if I've learned mine; I guess we'll find out if it continues to haunt me in the future.
