Which of the women here use a farmer's blow that would be the envy of a seasoned sharecropper to clear a stuffy nostril?

...or do you:

pack tissues
wipe on the glove
wipe on the jersey
snort in and swallow
other

...just curious.

YIKES, I wipe on gloves but then wash gloves. To dang busy riding to pull out a tissue, not sure about blowing a nostril, but my boss told me a story once he was riding and this pack came up behind him and a girl was the lastone and she did the blowing of nostril and it got all over him. He proceeded to ask me if that is something I do???? FUNNY!!!

I'm still teaching Jessica how to master the snot rocket. We're working on it.

"Women who blow"

Darn... I thought it was a porn thread...

All the top women riders I know shoot it straight out onto the ground. Holding one nostril closed helps with the velocity and helps it fly faster and straighter; repeat for other side... Yeah, and look back first to make sure you're last...

Snot rocket (or 'Bush-boy blowie' around these parts) is a great way to get rid of excess mucus! I always check around me before I shoot off though - don't want to hit anybody, as has been the case with a couple of previous posts. There's a fine art to getting the right velocity to ensure you don't get yourself either!

Well, this is the most I've laughed in a while...

I don't generate to much nasal mucous, but on a bike, snot rockets rule...

at work...kleenex.

Learned it from my mom, a farm girl, who learned it from her father. She thought it was the most disgusting thing ever. She made the mistake of telling me about it.

Ooops, sorry, I'm a guy but couldn't resist.

....at least I don't do that SNNNNNNK thing and suck it back into my throat. Ugh!

I will wipe on my glove, but I carry kleenex with me in my back pocket. IF I get a chance like stopping at a light, I'll give it a good honk. Especially at colder times of year when your nose runs more. I also have no trouble reaching into my pocket for a kleenex while riding- if you can reach back there and get your energy bar, unwrap and eat it, no reason you can't get a kleenex.

Speaking of sucking the snot into your throat, I can spit the resulting mucus-ball like 20ft. Pretty impressive if I may say so.

Most women are too polite to do any of this. Though men do.
I find the worst are those who haven't perfected the snot rocket. So instead of shooting a glob out, it's just like a fine mist.

Or the guy with a full mustache and he does not realize it is hanging from it

To actually find women that will do the snot-rocket in public is hard. Kind of like trying to find a women who chews tobacco Although I do know a few.

My nose runs like a faucet during the colder months and one of the best things I learned from my guy friends is the snot-shots. Simply wiping on my gloves was driving me crazy cuz it wasn't enough.

You mean to tell me they make something to wipe your nose with? Wow. What will they think of next? I'd guess something other than that Sears catalog I use in the ole 2 holer out back. It would be nice to not have to pace myself when the Fall issue is running out of pages. I have to save the ladies section for last. It was the wife's influence.

Damnit, I've earned my moniker!
<----------------------------

If you're really a snotty person, wiping won't do much. I'd rather blow it on the ground than carry it around in my pocket. But then, I did grow up in farm country.
