Have you ever been in a public place and needed to go deep for the ol’ tickler that is up the sinus cavity? You know that feeling of one of those genuine scratchy foreign objects otherwise known as a hardened booger? We have all been there, that is for sure. If you try to deny it, you are just lying. Nothing can be more annoying that a one of those pointy ones that just cries out for picking!
Imagine if you will that you are in a high profile position with cameras continually pointed at you whenever you go out in public. Consider the president of the USA, when one of the old pointy ones starts to do the dingle-dingle. What are your options? How can you attack it without anyone calling you out on it?
You have to go digging! You know there is no other option. Sniffing inward yields no results! Blowing outward could result in an even bigger disaster! What to do, what to do?
The technique could best be described as the ‘Presidential Nosepick’ approach. One must outwardly appear to be concentrating on the events at hand, while one carefully places both hands in the vicinity of one’s nasal cavity.
One must then, appear to be focused elsewhere in the room. Don a persona of a careful ‘thinker’ with both hands covering ones nose in such a way as to appear that the fingers are all accounted for.
However, the fingers are a mere distraction! They are part of the illusion to draw attention away from the pick! The real techniques require the thumbs up both nostrils! This gives one the ability to pinch both cavities and be successful in the extraction!
Whoo-hoo! The exciting feeling one must have to not only achieve relief, but also to have no one else in the room be the wiser! The next trick, of course is to pass it off to someone else with a hearty pat on the back or handshake with Joe Biden, or even on the sequins of Mrs Obama’s dress. All too easy…
