Some people take Gogol too seriously. Me? I just apply duct tape to the edges of my nose to make sure it won't get up and walk away. It seems to be a functional, cheap solution. And I can change the color weekly!

From Vaught's Practical Character Reader, p 86.

My nose is somewhere between "Good and Bad" and "Selfish and Hopeful." I'd like to keep it that way, so I don't end up with a replacement nose that is "mental."

(How funny that I encountered "The Nose" and the Practical Character Reader in the same week!)

Jayme My nose is somewhere in between neutral and vital. Now I know!

Cindy Vitally Neutral! Sounds like the name of a band.

Jayme Hey, don't even think about stealing my band's name. You already have dibs on The Good, the Bad and the Selfish...and the Hopeful?

Cindy I like the question mark after Hopeful.
