Earwax (not suitable for sensitive stomachs)

I have a STRONG aversion to bodily secretions and certain bodily functions. I also hate body hair. If I had my way, the only hair ANYONE would have would be on their head. Some facial hair on men is acceptable, but that's it. Seriously. the most attractive thing to me about Michael Phelps is that he has to shave everything off to swim... but I digress.....



I never understood those couples that talk about popping each other's zits or using each other's tooth brushes. I understand that we swap spit when we kiss and stuff, but I don't want to have my husband's plaque in my mouth. Ew. And the zit popping thing makes me dry heave.



So today I was talking about how I need new ear buds (the kind with the rubber part that goes into the ear canal) because the normal plastic ones really hurt my little ears. The Hubs kindly offered to switch with me, because that's the kind that he has and he doesn't like them. I was all for it (even though they're black, and I want a fun color like pink to match my nano) until he handed them to me. (This is going to make me sick just typing it. Bear with me here, people.) Right on one of the rubber parts was a great big orange glob of EARWAX. That's right. Wax. From his ear. And he wanted me to put them in MY ears and test them out. Men are gross. I mean, seriously, would YOU do it?



So tell me, SITStas, does this gross you out as much as it does me? What grosses you out? (Do I really want to know?!)

Earwax is right up there but he worse is clippings from shaving.

Tiffany said...

I am totally and completely grossed out.

We are a non zit popping family over here.

My husband is the same way about hair. He hates it.
I don't deal well with ear wax either, and don't get me started on Feet.

FatGuySpeaks said...

Hahahahahahaha. Hahahahahahahaha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. What would have been funnier is if you wouldn't have looked, and then your guy's earwax would have been mixed together.

Jilly--you're silly. Then again, I am a man and earwax does not bother me.

Some things gag me...ear wax I have sadly learned to deal with, only because I used to have to deal with that in a doctors office I worked at, I will not tell you what I had to do, since you are so sensitive;) LOL

Found you through SITS, congrats girl!

Kimmie0270 said...

Yea... I'm grossed!

Brenda Jean said...

Ewwww...yes that is gross. Worse for me though is when my hubby wants me to poke at an ingrown hair or pimple on his back, side, whatever. I just can't. Really, there is just NO WAY.

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

So that was pretty gross indeed.
Enjoy your SITS day.

Patti said...

Yep, grossed out here! LOL Congrats on being featured!

I'm right there with you. My husband needed some new earbuds for his ipod but hadn't made it to the store yet. He was upset that I wouldn't let him use mine. No way, I didn't want to have to wear them after being in is ear. Even if he has been my hubby for 16 years.

The Fishers said...

Ear Wax is totally gross. However, I think wet hair, mine included, is gross. I can't stand it, hence why I have a hard time at public pools! Congratulations on SITS day!

Natalie said...

The earwax thing definitely creeps me out. I have a fetish about keeping my ears clean & making sure all the kids do too.
And I HATE body hair. Ew!

lemonologie said...

I totally agree with your take on grossness! I too hate body hair, popping zits and ear wax. Eww!

Manda said...

Man, I must be a wierd-o...this stuff doesn't bother me...actually it interests me ! HA! I need a job in a dr's office so I could witness this stuff firsthand!

Michelle said...

Earwax doesn't gross me out so much, especially since I have kids. I think they are put on this earth to specifically produce earwax and nothing else.

What grosses me out more... than... [heaving] anything... nose secretions. [Just threw up in my mouth a little bit.] I can't stand anything having to do with said liquid. Not even the word "nostril" or [heaving] "snot" or [really heaving now] "booger."

I better get over my aversion since I have ALL BOYS. Who, along with produce earwax, were put on this earth to do nothing else but walk around with one finger up their nose at all time.

I hate toenails a lot...A LOT. But I'm afraid I have to pop my husband's zits occassionally--if it makes you feel better I dry heave when he makes me do it!

Ashley. Unscripted... said...

Um, totally. I wouldn't use someone else's buds for that very same reason. Ew.

Crazy Momma said...

Yuck. Absolutely YUCK!

My DH trims his chest hair...and leaves the trimmings all over the bathroom floor.

The WORST, however, has got the be when the deodorant gets all balled up in his armpit hair...TOTAL armpit dingleberries! DISGUSTING!

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

Hey SITSah.

Well, my husband has an ENORMOUS amount of body hair so I can't really relate to that part. But the ear wax? Yeah, that's gross. But I would probably give the buds back to him with a clorox wipe and tell him to keep his own ear wax, thank you very much, but that the ear buds would be appreciated when cleaned off.

You have a great blog. I'll be back! And good luck with TTC. God has a plan, ya know?

Maternal Mirth said...

Eeeew! I hate when Dummy tries to kiss me before he brushes his teeth in the AM. Ick!

But earwax???? Whoa ... gross!

Tara said...

ewwwwwwwww!

Annegirrl said...

I don't even like stuff in my ears at all. Feet gross me out more than anything.

Jennifer said...

Ewwwww! That grosses me out!! You didn't use them, did you??

Evi said...

Yup...that's nasty! I have four kids so I totally have the gag reflex intact (kinda have to!...three of them are boys)...but that would have thrown me...EWWW! Test them out...EWWW!

Have fun on your SITSta day!

Sass said...

Oh my gosh. I just gagged when I read this post. Ugh.

I think the thing that grosses me out the absolute worst, though, is hair in the shower drain that is obviously not mine. Again...gagging as I type this.

:)
