Yuck For The Happy Trash

This has been the most bizarre cold I've ever had. I was fine on Thursday. I felt fine on Frida... no... wait. "What's this?" Around 5pm, I sneezed. And then sneezed again.

Sniffle, sniffle...



By 7, I'd torn through half a box of tissues not to mention sixteen ounces of snot. Yes I measured. OK, no I didn't, but you know what I mean. The situation was grim! At one point, I gave up on tissues, opting instead to stuff my head into the sink, clog one nostril, and, with a mighty ear clogging blow, a river of yuck came flowing out of the other.

Yeah, I even grossed myself out with that one, though I must admit the move was highly effective.


But here's the crazy part: Despite feeling as if I'd caught a terrible cold Friday night, by Saturday night I felt fine. How odd...

I've been taking it easy this weekend just in case. I mean, really, what kind of cold lasts less than a day? Is there some sort of round two on the way? Apparently not, but I'm being careful all the same.

It's truly amazing how disgusting the human body is. Think about the many forms of goo that ooze out from here and there. Yellow stuff, brown stuff, green stuff, sort-of off-white stuff...

I believe that is why my bathroom trash can is smiling. It knows tissues filled with clear goo beats the hell out of what gets dropped in the toilet.

happy trash

Always look on the bright side I say! You could have been born a toilet. Or worse...

...a republican.

I know that last joke had nothing to do with this post, but it was there, so I went for it.

Similar thing happened to me...all day Saturday i was fine, until 9pm when i got a killer sore throat. No other symptoms..it was weird. I had to take Nyquil and Halls Plus to numb my throat enough for me to fall asleep. But today I'm fine!

That last picture of your trash can made me giggle cause it looks like it is saying, "Mmmm! Yummy snot-filled tissues!"

Sorry for being gross, but it was funny in my head!

Gross? Are you kidding? It's hard to out-gross my sink comment.

The Happy Trash trash can is part of what remains of a set. I have a giant orange and black smiley faced bath mat and a smiley toothbrush holder. In my first Portland loft, my bathroom also had smiley glow in the dark shower curtain rings (don't be jealous! wink).

True enough about out-grossing the sink process... It reminds me of a book I own called The RE/Search Guide to Bodily Fluids... it is hilariously gross :)

Ooh! Glow in the dark shower curtain rings! How can i NOT be jealous? I am a sucker for glowing and/or shiny things... I'm a human magpie *laugh*
