Happy (Lunar) New Year

The other day I was about to eat a fish with Alaska and, before the food arrived, I shot a gigantic booger onto the table! I didn’t have to hold down any air passages, I didn’t flick it with thumb and forefinger… I just exhaled and launched a pretty impressive slimeball out of my right nostril. I didn’t even see it until Alaska said dude that’s fucking disgusting.

Since then the streets of Seoul have been more or less deserted. I’d like to think the city was evacuated because of what came flying out of my nose, but I’m pretty sure it’s because today is Lunar New Year. In America, New Year’s Day is more like Hangover Recovery Day, but over here it means leaving town and visiting the folks.
