So, TMI, I have post-nasal drip. Always had it, and when I was a kid it was pretty bad. Snot would just constantly leak from my nose and I always had to blow my nose like I was sick. Except for a near-brush with death from a still-inexplicable illness when I was 6 or 7, I was generally in good health, so my leaky nose was just my lot in life. We didn’t know about Neti Pots back then, which I think would’ve helped.

Anyway, because of the all the snot, I had to carry around a handkerchief. I had a few of them in circulation at any given time. I remember once, my aunt gave me one for Christmas that was really nice, I didn’t want to use it. These were the two that I took with me when we moved to the U.S., but they became defunct when I realized that here, we use disposable Kleenex, to keep things sanitary.
