Nose news is...
But my operation (remember the Nose Operation? The nasty one last Novemeber? Surely you can't have forgotten already?) has left me with asymmetrical nostrils.
Now, I realise that isn't really such a big deal, but for a while, it really bothered me. I know faces aren't symmetrical (if you're not sure about this, look at the mirror reflection of someone you know well. It will look odd, because you're used to their right-way-round asymmetry). I'm getting used to it (after all, I don't have to look at it, do I?), but it has made me nose-aware (a condition where you focus on people's noses, searching anxiously for those that have one nostril bigger/higher/uglier than the other). I've found that very few people seem to have a matching pair of nostrils, and I find that comforting.
What about you? How are you, in the equal nostril department?
PS the above is not my nose. It's younger and browner than mine. But it has a mind of lopsidedness which makes me feel quite fond of it.
