Ever seen those commercials for Breathe Right Nasal Strips? They’re those strippy things you put on your nose at night to stop snoring.
Y’know how much those things cost? They’re about $23/box. Now I think the box has about 30 of them in it so I guess it’s not even a buck a strip, but still, that seems expensive for a good night’s sleep.
Anyway, I bought a box. My honey can snore the face off a trout (whatever that means), and apparently so can I. When I told him that I’d bought these for his snoring and for me too sometimes, since I snore sometimes, he told me that I snore all the time. All the time? I snore all the time? Hmph, I didn’t know that.
The difference between my snoring and his snoring is that he likes to listen to me snore. I think it helps put him to sleep… when I’m not snoring the shoes off the bacon. And his snoring? Holy crap. It wakes me up when I’m trying to sleep in. I may sleep through it all night, but as soon as I get up to pee, he subconsciously thinks that he’s got the bed to himself, and he feels free to snore to his heart’s content – really loudly and unabashedly. So when I go back to bed, I usually can’t sleep through all that thunderous roar.
So I’ve got these strips. I haven’t tried them. They’ve been sitting here for a week now and I’ve yet to stick one on my nose or his. Maybe we’ll try it tomorrow night – then I can test whether I can sleep in silence on Saturday morning. Although I’ll probably get up to pee and not be able to get back to sleep anyway, I’m so used to getting up at 6:00 a.m.
I’ll let you know what I think of them.
