Day 3167: Noses

People that knowses this blog know that I’ve been thinking a lot about noses lately, because the little girl with this nose …

… who didn’t know what she was doing, caused my nose to start bleeding out of control last weekend.

My husband Michael thinks that Joan the cat has a funny nose, but I love her nose.

I’m also loving MY nose more, here and now, because it no longer has an ugly and painful balloon stuck up it and it seems to be healing rather well!

I have to be careful and gentle with my nose for the next week. Because I take a blood thinner, the cat scratch inside my nose will take longer to heal. But the mouth under my nose is smiling today, for sure!

Yesterday morning, before I saw the reassuring Ear, Nose & Throat specialist at the hospital, I searched for quotes about noses and found these:

Do you see noses in any of my other images for today?

I smell blueberry popsicles in some people’s futures.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “noses.”

My nose knows that gratitude always smells sweet, so thanks to all who poke their noses into this daily blog, including YOU!

    I’m glad you’re feeling better, Ann. Don’t mind if I ask you how did the cat get to the inner part of your nose. It’s a good thing it didn’t get to your eyes.

    • I was asleep and she tried to wake me up by clawing at my nose and got a claw inside, we think. She’s not allowed into the bedroom any more!

    Very good news. Glad to hear it.

  4. Glad your nose has stopped bleeding!

  5. I think Joan’s nose is funny, great, and boopable, and the Shostakovich is wonderful and reminds me that Mel Brooks says Gogol is his favorite writer because Gogol has a story about a talking nose. Then there’s this which, like Mel Brooks, always makes me laugh:

  6. How can I not love the tap dancing noses? LOL! Seriously, though, I am so glad to hear that your healing has progressed so well. Dear little Joan does have a pretty little nose, I think. Who knew that behind that sweet expression lurked such mischief! 🙂

  7. Here’s to noses everywhere and I smell a recovery right around the corner for you-

    Yay for healing and feeling better!

  9. I’m pleased there is no lasting problem. A tap-dancing nose is preferable to a running one

  10. In my decades as a newspaper journalist, Ann, I always had to balance the line between curious and nosy.
