Handkerchief…why?


So I saw an elderly man blow his nose yesterday and I realized that he was using a Handkerchief, which immediately grossed me out, but also peaked my interest to write a bit about it.  Seriously, what is the deal with Handkerchiefs…who ever thought that a reusable tissue would be a good idea?  Honestly, I’d rather blow my nose into a leaf, or even my hand and wash it after than blow it into a piece of cloth, fold that piece of cloth up and put it in my pocket, and when I need it again, pull the crusty thing out of my pocket and re-snotify it.  And we wont even get started on when someone (usually someone really old) is kind enough to lend you their handkerchief…

I just started eHT in January of 2011, and I'm shocked and humbled that people read it! For some reason it seems like I am always in the most ridiculous situations and witness things only seen in movies, so I like to share my experiences with all of you. Thanks for reading! xo

  1. I realize that maybe it’s not the cleanest of things, but there are just times when you don’t have access to tissues that a handkerchief would be a really useful thing to have.

    I’m with you on lending them out, though.

  2. Hahaha. So true. I mean this made sense before tissues were invented, but there really is no excuse at this point. GROSSSS.

  3. Hi there,

    I am a year 12 student from Mackellar Girls Campus, Australia, who is currently creating a graphic design product as my major work for the HSC Design and Technology course. I was interested in featuring your image http://erinhasthoughts.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/handkerchief_21104_lg.gif
    on one of my book pages, under your permission. If I may do so, please kindly respond.

    Many thanks,

    Lucy Edmont
