This isn’t even an April Fools joke. Although I did a cool one of those, too.
On the way to work this morning I had to blow my nose. I’ve been struggling against a nasty head cold for a week now, and am used to this. I drove with my knee, and used both hands to hold kleenex to my nose so I could clear my nasal passages.
I blew my brains out. I didn’t think I would, but I apparantly blew hard enough to pop both my ears simultaneously – immediately and completely losing my balance in a fast moving vehicle, controlled by my knee.
I almost yakked during the ensuing nasuea. I could see the road passing by, and I knew the world wasn’t spinning, but I felt like I was tumbling sideways.
It’s not like I could have closed my eyes for a few minutes to regain my composure.
I managed to slow down and make my way to the far right lane and drive very carefully for a few minutes until my ears gradually clicked back into order, but man, I was scared to death for a moment there.
