Have you heard the latest pop news? American Idol, Kelly Clarkson pees in the shower!!!! OMG!!! Not only that, but she checks out her tissues after blowing her nose to see what’s come out!!!
Why she would discuss this in public and/or why this is newsworthy, I have no idea, but it’s been covered by all the major pop news media. So it must be important.
The other day someone at work told me about a tribe of people somewhere who make it a point to eat the contents of their nasal passages, (particularly when they have a cold) because they believe consuming these viral hotbeds will grant them immunity from future viruses. A completely specious notion, of course since your body will naturally develop immunity to a virus once you’ve been afflicted with it. Unfortunately cold viruses mutate all the time so you’ll never be immune.
I once had a friend who washed and re-used her dental floss. She had strands of it hanging up in her bathroom and offered me one once when I stayed over. She was very thrifty.
There’s a woman at work who I’ve encountered several times in the washroom doing her loud and often smelly business in the next stall. She pulls herself together and then jauntily leaves without washing her hands. Every time. She often offers home-baked goodies around the office.
In the summer it always grosses me out to watch women popping the zits on their boyfriends’ backs while they’re sitting at the beach or in a park. I’m sure these things need to be done, but save it for indoors, please.
Long nails and or people who chew their nails are gag-worthy. Especially when you know the kind of crud that lives under your fingernails – bacteria, viruses, fecal matter, pinworm eggs – little bits and pieces you pick up from everything and everyone you touch.
Farts open up a whole range of weird personal habits. It’s apparently a universal phenomena that people enjoy smelling their own farts. People will stick their heads under their bed covers to get a good whiff. People fart in the bath and enjoy making stinky bubbles. People enjoy farting silently in public and watching the reactions of those close by.
Of course I don’t expect any of you have any gross or weird personal habits, but I’m sure your friends, family members and/or co-workers have some you’d love to share?
