“A nose that can see is worth two that sniff.”

That great quote is from Eugene Ionesco, a playwright in the theatre of the absurd. And it’s perhaps appropriate for the moment, because Alex had a biopsy done on his nose this week.  We thought it would be just a little scrape, but it turns out that he needed a stitch!  And a stitch on the nose is not a delicate thing, unfortunately.

So now he as a plaster (read: Band-Aid) on his nose, and it looks a little red and swollen. He’s been telling everyone that he got into a pub brawl, but I don’t think anyone believes him!  He won’t let me post a picture, even though it doesn’t really look that bad.  So here is a picture of another nose, just for comparison.
