So I darted into the elevator, hand over my nose as if a sneeze could happen at any moment. Looking like Rudolph, the white nose reindeer, I hopped into the car. You see, my nose had a very conspicuous patch of white ointment on it following minor "repairs". He said to wiggle my nose around on the drive home to "work" the med in and also to keep my poor schnoz from getting too sore when the blissful freezing wore off. (Another story!)
I cruised up to a red light, concentrating on my nose aerobics. Looked over at the driver to my left - our eyes met and there was a look of shock (for sure), horror and a faint smile which I read to mean"I can't believe what I'm seeing" - for seconds I had forgotten I was doing nose aerobics.
Although dying inside, I smiled my sexiest old lady smile and roared off. Blissfully, the light had turned green.
