Does this just mean handkerchiefs are classy and tissues aren't? Is that true? Do you frown upon tissues? Is it an environmental thing? Am I just slow?
You ask far too many questions, Shan, and if in doubt just blow your nose like sportsmen do.Block one nostril with thumb, blow, block other nostril, blow.
It's IRONIC, shan.Apparently, keeping snot on a piece of cloth in your pocket is "classy", whereas keeping snot in a tissue and throwing it out is "cheap".
Just curious... Was this inspired by Roger von Oech's chapter in The Age of Conversation?Great visual, as always. :)
ah i liked it when i could see your last couple of posts in the sidebar, so i can click the first post in my feed then follow the links on the side.
Oh ok, so this is about pretentious perception, not truth. Thanks japhy.
Love the sarcasm in this one. I have always thought hankerchiefs were nasty.
For those interested, there is an interview with Ms Hagy now up at http://globalindex101.blogspot.com
It's different in other societies. In India, nearly everyone uses a hanky, but tissues (and all disposable goods) are for the economically higher classes.
