So There I Was...

... eating lunch at my desk. I love Panda Express's Kung Pao Chicken. I had picked out all the bell peppers but I was happily munching on the red chiles. Those things are hot but they sure are tasty.

As I was chewing up a mouthful of chicken, chile and rice, disaster struck.

I sneezed.

Little bits of chile pepper invaded my nasal cavity. My nose started burning from the inside and my eyes started watering. I was coughing and laughing at the same time. My coworker was laughing at me.

My tender nasal membranes were burning.

It felt so good. It's still burning a little.
