the other day i realised it was time to start cutting my nasal hair. i looked into the mirror straight up the mildly gross canal known as my nose and it worried me a little.
my septum has been off course for a while now - dating back to it being broken by a falling ceiling tile at an idlewild gig (but that's another story) when i was 16 and it healed weird (this was also responsible for the weird roman nose type bump i have - nature intended me to have a straight nose dammit), and it's never proved too much of a problem, but looking up there, with the inner part of one nostril being significantly larger than the other, which is a little squashed, it seems like maybe the sort of thing that might cause problems in future, even if only with like snoring or something. does anyone know if this is the case?
and, as a second question, i heard that you can get your septum taken out if it's gone astray, on the NHS, a non-cosmetic nose job. that seems like it'd really suck though and make me a mononostrilled freak, so i'm not so keen. but maybe they just take some out round the top so both nostrils are open equally. anyone know anyone's had it done? had it done yourself? aside from probably being able to push a pencil in one side of your nose and out the other, were there any benefits?
