Advice and Noses
"As in your nose," I said.
"Yes," she said, "what about my nose?"
"It's so capable of of gathering and distributing a vast quantity of olfactory memories. Memories of your grandmother's house, memories of that night I adopted a baby skunk and later that night disowned it for sassing me."
"Are you saying my nose is big. Too big? You think my nostrils are giant repositories? Do you think...are you going to sell me to Dyson?"
"I don't think Dyson would buy you. You don't suck enough."
Not funny, apparently.
"Your nose is wonderful," I said. "I love it."
"No, that's descriptive."
