Recent new experiences


#1

I had my nostrils waxed by a Turkish barber this week. He asked if I wanted a bunch of extra stuff done while the clippers were right next to my ear and I agreed to it all without really being able to hear what I was agreeing to.

It wasn’t that bad, actually.


#2

What was the other extra stuff?


#3

Eyebrow trim and setting my ears on fire. Standard.


#4

I thought I was experiencing joy the other day, but it was just trapped wind.


#5

Had my ears done for the first time a couple months ago. Was fine.


#6

The first time I had that done I had no clue what was happening. Apparently I’ve got a great poker face, though, because my expression in the mirror was utterly unphased while my inner monologue was screaming “WHY THE FUCK IS THERE FIRE”

Peak Britishness achieved - too polite to ask why a stranger appeared to be about to set fire to my head.


#7

I have recently for the first time both Filed and clipped my fingernails (on separate occasions, I’m not s maniac) since stopping biting them.


#8

Spent 2 or 3 minutes watching Ed Sheeran jumping about on the Pyramid Stage with his guitar.


#9

Slapped a jelly fish on the head, it was horrible!


#10

Didn’t catch a cold/have more than a day of snivelling for like 3 months, I’ve got perennial rhinitis/hayfever/crap immunity and breathing problems I had to be hospitalised for as a kid so this is actually amazing, it’s never happened before for this long :sob: :tada:


#11

I ate a Cadbury’s Double Decker for the first time about 10 days ago.

Happy to discover I’ve not been missing out on much,


#12

really laughing picturing your face as this guy whispers in your ear if you want “a bunch of extra stuff done”


#13

had a poached egg for the first time yesterday

would have again bot not on a fucking fry up for fucks sake


#14

you’ve never had a poached egg before??


#15

I was on holiday. Figured why not.


#16

i had not

i have only recently started eating eggs properly


#17

They don’t come in tins or can be stored in the freezer, so your story checks out.


#18

What does improper egg eating look like? On second thoughts, maybe don’t answer that.

Discovered this new flavour of Arla yogurts the other day

A+ highly recommended.


#19

love it when my barbers give me the full works
