A very short piece today. I’m feeling a little ghastly. Had these splints extracted from my schnozzle.


The scale’s a bit hard to make out from this image – should have left my thumb in – but they’re about 6cm long. ‘Goodness me’ is right. They’re flexible, which was among the many surprising aspects of what emerged during the conk normalization process.

Anyway, perhaps understandably I have had a bit of a headache since, although this is offset by the genuine bliss of being able to breathe properly again.
