it is time

April 3, 2013

I kind of feel like Rafiki.

It Is Time!

yup. all good.

yup. all good.

And while we’re here, I want to pose a question.

You know what a farmer blow is, right? Or a “snot rocket”? I’ve been known to blow a few of those in my time, especially while riding my bike. Cuz you know, when you’re climbing faster than you should, you need all your orifices for air.

So I don’t really care what we call that thing. What I’m asking is, what do you call it when you blow the blow? That is. you plug one nostril (for lack of a better word–maybe “blowhole?”), and you blow to enable breathing, and somehow the seal you created at the back of your throat (or the front, if you’re pressing your tongue to roof of mouth–this is not the preferred method) to direct all air out the blowhole, blows. You blow the blow.

And you make a sound kind of like Gollum makes. And if you’re lucky, you also feel like you’ve scraped some skin off the back of your throat.

Okay, all that. So, the question is, what do you call that?

    I refer to that as “old manning it”
    Ex. I was 4 miles into a 50 miler and had to “Old Man” it so I could breathe.

    • dug Says:

      but that’s not the question. the question is what to call it when you blow it? that is, you close a nostril, close the back of your throat, and then as you blow, your throat opens, so you don’t exactly blow so much as choke.

  6. Habanero Says:

    a “Dug”

  7. cantareros Says:

    A “blown blow” or a “subsonic snot” for its lack of velocity exiting the blowhole.

  8. bikemike Says:

    painful.

  9. kanyonkris Says:

    Snot Balk
    A dud
    Backfire
    Mucus reflux
    Blown valve, alt. Burned valve

    This is important work, dug. The blown blow has long needed accepted and uniform terminology.

    So unpleasant. And every time I wind up a rocket it’s in the back of my head, “Man I hope it doesn’t backfire”.
