  • By the way, I used snorifice on my husband last night. He was putting his breath-right strip on top of his nose and I suggested that it might work better if he placed it directly OVER his snorifice. Just for good measure, I suggested he try one on his padded face hole as well. *snort*

    He suggested I spend less time on Wordie and rolled over!

  • Ahahaah, I have a true story. When I was 17 I was taking a video class in school and I spent an entire month, every single day of the week, video-recording my father for 30 seconds at exactly 11:05 PM, snoring very loudly with a big open mouth in front of the TV. It made for a hilarious laughs in class.

  • And are you now estranged from your father, whichbe? ;->

    Dontcry, I spent about an hour calling people a padded face hole the other night, right after I discovered the phrase. I can't tell you how often it comes in handy.
