I got a nosebleed in Woolworths in Leamington yesterday. No particular reason, I just suddenly started spurting blood from my nostril. I was somewhat shocked, as were all the staff who I went up to and said in a completely deadpan manner:
“Yeah I seem to have developed a nosebleed, have you got any toilets or anything?”
The whole thing was a tad unusual for me, I can only remember one other situation when I had a nosebleed and this was back when I was a lot younger and accidently headbutted a friend of mine while on a bouncy castle. With my nose.
Infact that particular occasion taught me a very important lesson which I have stuck to for a long time since:
“Never Sneeze while you have a nose bleed. Particularly if you are standing in front of a mirror in the ladies toilet which you got taken into by the first aid person.”
The look on the face of the person who came out of the cubicle just afterwards…
