It's like family, only weirder…

Mucous /myoo’ kuss/

When I get a cold or severe allergy attacks, there is a sudden twinge inside one nostril that sets me off. I think it’s normally my right nostril, which effects my right eye and causes it to redden and weep. During the twinge, I’m super-susceptible to allergens and smells. The least little provocation and I’m sneezing. The twinge passes (generally after my second or third sneeze) and my face returns to normal. Mucous excretion also refrains and I can get back into my life. If I blow my nose at this time, I’m feeling good for a short period of time before the twinge returns. Damn you, twinge, and the microbial horse you rode in on!
