It’s not OCD

July 6, 2007 at 10:06 am (private personal space)

Glad to report my clean ear obsession is not an absurd one. No wax on, wax off (Karate Kid, Pampoentjie!!!) for us.
That got me thinking about other bodily things that make me cringe:

– Bitten nails. A nailclipper is cheap. So is a nailfile.
– Heels so cracked it’s black. Mrs M can reveal more about her colleagues cracked heels…
– Dirty fingernails, or worse, dirty toenails. And long dirty toenails are the worst.
– That weird stuff people get in the corners of their mouth. Can’t they FEEL it’s there???
– Baby powder on dirty hair. Heeellllo, we can tell it’s baby powder on dirty hair.

    Oe meisie, you obviously haven’t heard that trick. If you put baby powder on your hair it absorbs the oil apparently. Then you shake it out, brush the hair and it doesn’t look like you smeared a Vaseline potjie into your hair. Brush through and maybe even blow a bietjie to get that last bits out.
    I know many people who have tried it. Sies.

    In such cases a Hat is needed indeed.
