I just have to know something.
It’s been three days now . . .
And three boxes of tissues . . .
Also countless paper towels . . .
And maybe a roll of toilet paper. 
Seems like there’s no end in sight . . .
And I really, really want to know something.
And I’d bet my hanky you have too.
Just exactly how much snot can one nose make?
Oh, don’t go, EEUW! That’s disgusting!
Because I know you’ve thought the same thing at least once during a bad cold.
I mean, the body is an amazing machine.
The job of mucus is very efficient. Actually fascinating.
But after three days of an incessant “buzzing’ in my nostrils . . .
And a forever dripping faucet on my face . . .
I surrender!
Will it ever cease?
And for heaven’s sake!
Ah, ah, ah, ah . . .GONE!
Ah, ah, ah, ah . . .GONE!
Ah, ah, ah, ah . . .GONE!
Ah, ah, ah, ah . . .GONE!
Where do all those “almost” sneezes go?
I SO need to “choo.”

Always, Em-Musing
