Binarydrone had TMI to share

Yesterday, as I was performing my morning grooming, I happened to notice a little black hair growing out of the side of my nose. Not coming out of the nostril, mind you, but out of the side of my nose. It was, I don’t know, about 1/8 of an inch long.

Well, I am getting to that age where those sorts of things start to crop up and so I just grabbed the old tweezers and gave it a pluck.

Now at this point, I bet you are thinking that this is not a TMI thread and that I lured you in to this thread with false advertising. Sadly, this is not the case.

You see, this hair was actually a huge, black 1 to 1.5 inch long hair that had grown from my septum across my nostril and then pushed its way through the small hole that was left over from when I had my nose pierced (about 10+ years ago) to emerge.

On top of this just being gross, it hurt a hell of a lot more than I was expecting and the pain came from a source that was unexpected as well. Blech.

I just checked the spot where I used to have my nose pierced. No hair. Now I’m disappointed!

Wow. I can’t decide whether to be grossed out or amazed that the nose hair made such a trip and happened to make it out the former pierce hole. You almost have to admire that nose hair.

Yes. It was very plucky.


I guess. I only wish that the hair on my poor bald pate had the same verve.

I bet a fertilized jungle vine that must reach sunlight or die couldn’t pull off that journey. That’s one tenacious filament.

So… are we thinking transplant?

Eeew. Believe me, I would rather be bald than to have a head full of these extra thick, black things. It sort of reminded me of the hairs growing off of that dudes back in The Fly (remake).

I had a nose hair “ingrow” itself and push its way through the side. Hurt like a sumbitch for a couple of days, then one day I looked in the mirror and saw a little black hair sticking out of my nose.

Gave it a tug, and this long strand of hair came out. I could feel it unravelling on the other side. I thought it was the coolest thing.

That was awesome, Binarydrone. I’ve gotten some interesting things out of piercing holes, but nothing that can compare to that.

I too, had to scramble to the mirror to see if a particularly adventurous nose hair had managed to wend its way through my old nose piercing.

Alas, it is not to be.

Binarydrone, did you feel better securing vengeance?

That was bad. :stuck_out_tongue:

That would be something to sneeze at.

Yeah, it took me all day to come up with that one.
