Why, when eating a huge, hot pot of broccoli and peas does my nose begin to run? Well, one could also raise the question, why was I eating a pot of broccoli and peas?
Because I am broke as a joke. That's why.
However, that's beside the point. Why does hot soup, or hot chocolate, or ridiculously hot anything make my nose drizzle?
Does the steam loosen up the muccoids and cause them to begin to flow? Does this occur in direct relation to the heat waves flowing up the nose, melting the resistance of the mucus, and thus causing it to drip and run?
Am I the only one with whom this problem exists?
Who am I? Where did I come from?
