Nose it or hate it?

So this is pretty random, but what's the general consensus on nose spray? I tried it once a few years ago and gagged when it went down the back of my throat, vowing never to touch the stuff again.

After a few months of boyfriend and I sharing living space, I started noticing bottles of the stuff everywhere. In the bathroom, in the linen closet, by the bed. He's in love with the stuff.

So during a nasty bout of the flu last week, when I got so tired of not being able to breathe out of my nose I was ready to scream, I gave it another shot. And you's not that bad. The taste in the back of the throat was still ghastly, but I could breathe!

The freedom was short-lived (not even close to the 8 hour promise on the bottle) but for the 2 minutes of agonizing drip, I think it might be worth it.

Afrin, you've got a convert.

So last night was my first test since 2002...gotta love it. I swear I felt like such a dork...totally had the sweaty palms and the tummy pains. Chemistry is a fun subject though, which I didn't realize the first time I was exposed to it in high school.

I'm really looking forward to this evening. Boyfriend and I have a date (which come much less frequently in the past year of living together) at the Melting Pot...YUM.
