A rock up my nose

    It was one of the strangest things that have ever happened to me. I was trimming with my trusty Redmax around a few yard items when I hit a little clump of rocks. They went every which way, here and there, and before I could back off, I felt something hit me in the nose. After it hit me and I backed away from what I was trimming, I noticed that something just didn't feel right. Wanna know why? There was a rock up my nose!! Lodged in my right nostril. It was just big enough to get in by the force of the trimmer, but not small enough to just drop out. After a few seconds of work, I had the darn thing out. Man, did I feel better.

    As long as you aren't snorting any other "rocks" you'll be OK

    Happens just about once a year. Most of the time I just bring it out through my mouth.

    The other just about yearly occurrance is the ole Dog poop in the face routine.

    That is so weird I had the same thing happen about 5-6 years ago . I thought I was the only person that ever happened to, my boss' wife had to remove it w/ twezzers.
