The Nose Knows...


funny word of the day: nostril
Definition from Merriam-Webster:
nos·tril
Pronunciation: \ˈnäs-trəl\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English nosethirl, from Old English nosthyrl, from nosu nose + thyrel hole; akin to Old English thurh through

Some people, like Amy Winehouse, for example, like to put substances up their nostrils. Others prefer nose rings. Neither is my thing.
