Do women blow snot rockets?(15 posts)

Do women blow snot rockets?tronracer

Here's the update for anyone who cares. I got my mom the Cannondale R500. I told her she's a cyclist now (teasing) so she has to learn how to blow a snot rocket. She said, "never in a million years, that's disgusting." So my question is, how many women feel this way? You can't just stop to blow your nose and sometimes it just keeps building up. What do you do?

but her rocket lacks proper fuel. She isn't enthusiastic enough and her rocket usually explodes on her jersey.

My wife doesn't, but my daughters do. As a matter of fact, I first heard the term snot rocket from a woman.

'course we do! but in our club - only if you're at the back of the pack. its not done while you're at the front for obvious reasons. otherwise, the bit on the gloves between the thumb and the first finger is the way to go.

I thought it would never happen, but after a bad allergy season, I have embraced the snot rocket. It makes me feel delightfully ladylike ;)

My wife absolutly hates them. But then she just started cycling a week or two ago. I think this may change.

There is a story (probably apocryphal) about a reporter who went to interview a contestant at the Miss American Pageant. The contestant was rehearsing a dance routine, and as she toweled off, said to the reporter "Sorry I'm sweating so much".

One of the Pageant officials overheard the comment and admonished the young woman:

"Horses sweat, men perspire and women glow!"
