One day on our recent trip to Estonia, we were stopped at a traffic light. As we sat there, five guys came out of a restaurant adjacent to the light walking in single file, when one of them decided to blow a snot rocket … with not just one nostril, nope, both of them. We were in downtown Tallinn, in the middle of the afternoon. Classy!
For those of you who don’t know, a snot rocket [SR] is when you press down on one nostril with a finger or thumb and blow snot out of the other. It’s typically something you would do in private out in the forest [although it is popular with hockey players].
Well, we got a lot of mileage out of this moment. It was a topic of lively discussion for several days afterward, culminating in the creation of the term, eco-rocket [ER]! After all, SRs are eco-friendly. They don’t involve facial tissues and they’re biodegradable. Heck, kids eat ’em! Sorry about that visual!
I knew immediately that there was a blog somewhere in this experience and then it hit me. An ER is a surefire way to dampen [more like, kill] a romantic relationship! Hoooonk! ‘Honey, would you like some more wine!’
Here’s a list of some other things that are not likely to enhance a romantic relationship and are best done in private:
- Picking your nose
- Scratching your crotch
- Horking up phlegm
- Licking your plate
- Snoring [particularly on the couch]
- Peeing with the bathroom door open
- Cleaning wax out of your ear with your finger, then wiping it on your pants
If you are having difficulty maintaining romantic relationships, examine this list. Perhaps you are partaking in one or more of these romance killers.
Have an awesomely romantic day!
