his is actually a couple stories in one. Freshman year of college I lived in a suite, and I remember one day I left for my room when I saw my friends were going to start daring each other to eat the little peppers in the Chinese takeout they had gotten. That’s when I heard the scream and subsequently my friend G.S. came into the room remarking on how clear his sinuses were. More recently another friend was asking me if I had wasabi because their nose just wouldn’t clear up no matter how much they blew it.
