What's the worst thing about winter indoors?

Bloody noses. Gross disgusting bloody noses. Noses that all of a sudden drip rivers of bright red blood onto your clothing, the floor, and your shoes. Noses that give you no warning whatsoever, but just start bleeding because there's not enough drama in your life at that given second.

First you have to find some kleenex immediately to hold over the gushing nostril. Don't put your head back, because then the blood drips down your throat and that's way too gross to even comtemplate. Believe me, don't do it. Just pinch your nose at the bridge and, if you're really gushing, stuff some tissue up the nostril to stem the flood. Keep pinching for a few minutes and it will eventually stop. Just when you're getting everything cleaned up, there's this huge clot of gluey bloody phlem you have to hack up. Just yummmmy.

Last thing is to find some way to get the blood stains out of your clothing. You know you left that Shout stain stick someplace, right? Oh yeah, it's on top of the television in your room, the last place you had a bloody nose. Man, this sucks the big one.

GROSS! Indeed...Blood is the hardest stain to get out, isn't it? It's been such a very long time since I've had to live through a COLD WINTER..Brrrrr. and I honestly don't remember Blody Noses from the indoorness...that is a real trial, isn't it? Does it happen to all of you? Here's a case where you would hope that the blood out of your nose might be good for something other than staining...! But, alas...no such luck...

By the way Margalit, someone sent me a funny singing card about Tom C & Katy and their "alien" baby...I would try to send it to you but I can't find your email...

Oh yuck! I used to get bloody noses all the time when I lived at a higher altitude. Not fun.

I've found that soaking blood soaked stuff in cold water mixed with oxy clean overnight gets it right out. Maybe it depends on the fabric though. That's just what I do with my cloth pads.

I hear you. I've been lucky enough to avoid the actuall bloody nose so far, but have plently of dried bloody stuff build up over night and my tissues look like they came from a crime scene. I came over from bpn, btw.
