Nose hair, nasal hair, nostril hair. We all have it. We all need it. Here's why...
The winds here on Isla continue to blow. From the north, from the south, from the east, and occasionally from the west. The screens catch a lot of the fluff and dust.
Cleaning the screens is a task that should be done weekly. Miguel's method is with a broom dipped in soapy water, and then rinsed with a hose. This is difficult considering that all the windows have wrought iron grills in front of the screen. It's also messy, as wet shoes track dirt back into the house.
My method is to brush the debris from the screen with a long-haired brush. My hands just fit in the spaces between the grills, and I use a sweeping motion to loosen the dirt. The dust, hair, and other material forms a cloud as it leaves the screen. I try not to inhale but it's impossible not to get some dust up my nose.
Here's where the nose hair comes in. The tiny hairs trap the dust and bacteria and keep me healthy. But according to a doctor in California, most people don't have enough nose hair. To address the problem, the doctor has invented artificial nose hair.
Personally, I think I'll just stay with what I was born with and take my chances.
